Yes of course. The account exists, "smbclient..." work and I enter the share in this method. But when I edit the pdbedit -Lv root, I had the line : 
Nothing in the station. It's normaly?

%m, in samba, it's the netbios name of the machine. The docs say :

creating Machine Trust Accounts is
simply to allow the Samba server to create them as needed when the client
is joined to the domain.

add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd −d /var/lib /nobody −g 100 −s /bin/false −M %u

It's for a RedHat configuration and mine is a Debian Etch.
I search the good script to enter automaticly the machines on samba, it's simple.

I don't want configure all the windows in my share to enter the root as local administrator. Like the option group "Local administrator" on a Windows Serveur, I want my personnal account be a share AND local administrator on all the machine.
