surely you didn't do something important.


# getent passwd

list all your users, including users from LDAP (and that testuser1, and 
machine accounts with $ at the end)?

Try looking at samba logs for the computer you are joining to the domain.

It can be so that machine accounts aren't added for some reason (see if 
your machine accoun is added when you do getent passwd after failed 
domain join).
