Is the name of your machine test? Also, you are aware that for each 
machine account you are creating a home directory? They don't need one 
and it just makes /home/ cluttered.

Also, is there any reason why although you created a machine account for 
samba called test1 you actually have shown us a machine account for 
test000? Maybe I'm getting mixed up there but that doesn't seem right to me.
