Follow up on my own mail:
I tried a tdbsam backend to do the join again: I
- created a machine account in pdbsam
- joined the NetApp (this works)
- "dumped" the info of tdbsam with pbedit (-v and -w)
- stopped ldap
- put the info of the dump in LDAP
- switched to ldapsam
- started samba
- "dumped" the info of ldapsam with pdbedit (-v and -w)

both dumps have the same info, except for the 'NT username' field (in
tdbsam is this field empty, in ldapsam is it 'plato$').

When changing the machine password, the filer says:
plato> Tue Sep 26 18:02:02 CEST
[auth.dc.trace.DCConnection.errorMsg:error]: AUTH: Domain Controller
error: NetLogon error 0xc0000022: - Filer's security information differs
from domain controller.

What other info (not displayed by pdbedit -v and -w) could be different
between pdbsam and ldapsam?
