[Samba] Samba 3.0.22 PDC - "The parameter is incorrect"

Hi everyone;
      I have searched the internet up & down for an answer to this problem. I'm stumped.
  Here's what I've got:
  Samba 3.0.22 configured as a PDC using tdbsam as the passdb backend (switching to LDAP when I get everything working).
  testparm says everything is fine. I've added the root user and a normal user to the database (using smbpasswd). I even went so far as to manually create a machine trust account.
  The problem is, when I try to join a machine to the domain, it asks for the domain credentials. I supply it with \\DOMAINNAME\root and the password I set.
  I get a message back saying:
  "The following error occured attempting to join the domain <DOMAINNAME>:
  The parameter is incorrect.
  Any suggestions?
