[Samba] Computer Account to access share

I've currently been trying to get a computer account to access a share
on an active directory connected Samba server. Unfortunately it yields
"access denied" ever, unless I enable guess access, in which case I can
access it. Since I like to use samba for automatic software deployment,
this requires distributing administrative credentials to all the
workstation (hard to do, especially even somewhat securely) or use the
computer account (preferred).
I run Debian Lenny with Samba 3.4.3.
I've been looking around for this issue a long time, but unable to find
anyone with a solution.
I do get WinBind to make uids for the computer accounts (by executing
the 'id' command). That changes the error message to access denied.
storage:~# id joris2k\\nehemiah$
uid=10023(JORIS2K\nehemiah$) gid=10009(JORIS2K\domain computers)
Does anyone have any pointer how I can solve this problem?
Thanks and best wishes for the new year,
