Hi Vinícius!

Wish you a happy new year, too!

Yes, I solved my issue in the meantime. I made a mistake and tried 
joining the domain with the user instead of the administrator account. 
As no machine account had been previously created for that machine, the 
join couldn't be performed. Doing it as the administrator solved this 
and created the machine account in the background.

What does your smb.conf look like? Did you ensure a machine account 
exists? And which user did you supply for joining the domain?

Best regards

PS: I'm running Samba 3.3.2 and OpenLDAP 2.4.15 on Ubuntu 9.04 Server.
