I'm using LDAP as my passdb backend and I am having a problem joining
my machines to the domain.

I am running Samba 3.0.10:

When I run:

[root at core1 samba]# bin/net rpc join -U Administrator%5P4nkm3
Create of workstation account failed
Unable to join domain VOIP.

>From the command line, this is what appears in my smbd logs:

[2005/01/27 17:14:44, 0] rpc_server/srv_netlog_nt.c:get_md4pw(244)
  get_md4pw: Workstation VOIP-PDC1$: no account in domain


The workstation account for VOIP-PDC1 acctually DOES get added to the
LDAP tree as follows:

[root at core1 var]# ldapsearch -D
"cn=Manager,dc=voipincorporated,dc=com" -b
"dc=voipincorporated,dc=com" -x -W '(uid=VOIP-PDC1$)'
Enter LDAP Password: 
version: 2

# filter: (uid=VOIP-PDC1$)
# requesting: ALL

# voip-pdc1$, Computers, smb, voipincorporated, com
dn: uid=voip-pdc1$,ou=Computers,o=smb,dc=voipincorporated,dc=com
objectClass: top
objectClass: inetOrgPerson
objectClass: posixAccount
cn: voip-pdc1$
sn: voip-pdc1$
uid: voip-pdc1$
uidNumber: 2000
gidNumber: 553

loginShell: /bin/false

[root at core1 var]# 

Can anyone help me or point me in the right direction?
