You have to resolve required NetBIOS names (for example domainname#1B
and domainname#1C) correctly by using WINS or LMHOSTS file. The
required NetBIOS names are same as that required to establish the
trust between AD and Windows NT domain.

AFAIK, you also have to create an account on AD whose name and
password is same as the user using to establish on Samba.
