I am trying to setup a Samba server as a Primary Domain Controller, I have
added some user accounts and created some shares and I can access them from
a win XP client. 

Now I would like the Samba server to be the PDC. I like to join the domain,
however when I set the domain in XP I have to enter a username and password
for domain binding. The message I recieve is:

The following error occured attempting to join the domain"domainxx".
The username could not be found.

In the samba log files I find the following error messages every time I try
to connect:
[2008/02/21 09:29:45, 0] auth/auth_util.c:create_builtin_administrators(785)
create_builtin_administrators: Failed to create Administrators
[2008/02/21 09:29:45, 0] auth/auth_util.c:create_builtin_users(751)
create_builtin_users: Failed to create Users

Please also find my smb.conf file here (part of it):
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        load printers = No
        ldap ssl = no
        passwd chat = *Enter\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n
*Retype\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n *password\supdated\ssuccessfully* .
        include = /etc/samba/dhcp.conf
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY
        obey pam restrictions = Yes
        logon drive = C:
        force group = all
        deadtime = 15
        domain master = Yes
        winbind enable local accounts = no
        passdb backend = tdbsam
        passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
        wins support = true 
        allow hosts =,,
        dns proxy = No
        domain admin users = root
        oplocks = no
        netbios name = PDC01
        server string = %h server

        logon script = %U.cmd
        remote announce =
        workgroup = domainxx
        force user = smbguest
        os level = 32
        add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd -d /dev/null -g 300 -c "Machine
Account" -s /bin/false -M %u
        update encrypted = Yes
        syslog = 0
        panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d
        max log size = 1000
        domain logons = Yes
        security = user

Anyone any clue?
