Sorry, but as long as you don't supply some information about your system, 
nobody will be able to help you.

Versions, Log files, level 10 logs, ... that kinf of thing.

And, make sure that you don't have a problem with networking hardware and 
settings, like a differing MTU size, cabling problems, lousy NICs, ...

should read:
add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd -g  computers -c  Machine  -d  /var/lib/empty  -s /bin/false %u
