I know this may not necessarily be a samba question but am sure  
someone might have come across this problem before.

i follows the  
http://en.opensuse.org/Howto_setup_SUSE_10.1_as_Samba_PDC document to  
setup my PDC

everything went fine right until i tried to join a computer to the domain !

It says, username or password is wrong.

i googled and found out that i have to have a user with samba user and  
group id 0 in my ldap backend.

i have created a root user with these specs but still to no avail.

what is the correct way to create the domain admin ? i Tried putting  
the machine account first in the database. when i try join without  
password i get something like failed creating workstation account no  
rights !

by the way what algorithm should i be using to encrypt passwords in  
ldap ? ssha or md5 ?
