Well, the WinXP OS accepted it so I suppose it's not too long.
Anyway I now tried adding another machine named "MDVMBXP" which surely
is a good enough name, but the result is the same.
The client is not involved at all in the error, because it just happens
as soon as I do the following on the Samba PDC, well before trying to
join the client to the domain:
#>useradd -g smb_pc -d /dev/null -s /bin/false MDVMBXP$
#>passwd -l MDVMBXP$
#>pdbedit -a -m MDVMBXP
tdb_update_sam: struct samu (mdvmbxp$) with no RID!
Unable to add machine! (does it already exist?)
PS: uhm, I just tried using smbpasswd instead of pdbedit and it appears
to work, but I cannot try joining the domain now because I'm physically
far from the LAN. I'll check when possible.
