Hi all,

it took me about two days to find a solution for this problem.

For me, the problem was that my samba server itself wasn't part of it's 
own domain.

So what I had to do was:

# net rpc join -S <samba server name> -U root

 From that moment on I was able to add windows machines to my domain 
without problems.

Hopefully I could help some people.
