After playing around with Samba 3.0.11 with smbldap-tools v0.8.6 and 
later with v0.8.7 it seems that joining workstations to domain with 
'smbldap-adduser -w ws001' is not possible because it generates LDAP 
entries only as objectclass posixAccount and objectclass sambaSamAccount 
is missing.  So joining domain from workstation or making Computer 
account with smbldap-useradd -w doesn't work - you will get bounch of 
LDAP access rights errors in smb workstation log instead.

I did pass the bug by using phpldapadmin to create computer accounts 
...nb! don't forget to use correct SID in computer account phpldapadmin 

Hope smbldap-useradd will be fixed soon.
