[Samba] Problem creating root ldap user in SLES9

I am running Suse Linux Enterprise Server 9, and I am
trying to get Samba to authenticate using LDAP. I am
using the YaST system tool to configure the LDAP server,
LDAP client, and SAMBA.
The issue I am having is that after I configure the Samba
server to use the LDAP backend it prompts me for a
password creation for the root user. This root user will
be added to the LDAP directory, and I am assuming it will
be the account I use to join machines to the domain.
However, I get an error saying the root user cannot be
created. I checked the YaST error log, and this is what
it comes up with...

it already exist?)

SambaServer.ycp:2127 Failed to execute pdbedit
So, it's failing to execute a pdbedit, because It thinks
the root user already exists in the LDAP directory,
however, I happen to know that he doesn't.
Has anyone ever ran into a similar issue with SLES 9, or
have any ideas? Any help is appreciated, thanks.
