it should be the domain admin account, not the user.

try the following:

1) set the log level to 3 and see the logs for a given machinename when 
you are adding it

2) use the "add machine script" from the command line (smbldap-useradd 
-w testname$), and see if it gets added (getent passwd; it should be at 
the end)
