[Samba] Setting up samba server

I'm currently working with  my new  samba
 server [samba2.domain.com] which I will use for file sharing and I have
 an existing samba/ldap [smb/ldap.domain.com] as domain controller which
 I will use for authentication. 

below is my smb2.domain.com smb.conf


        workgroup = domain.com

        server string = Linux File Server

        security = SERVER

        password server = [smb/ldap.domain.com password]

        username map = [smb/ldap.domain.com ip address]

        preferred master = No

        local master = No

        domain master = No

        wins support = Yes

        hosts allow = 192.168.1. 


        comment = Tmp Iso Image Area

        path = /tmp/isos

        guest ok = Yes


        comment = Linux File Server

        path = /home/docs-2011

        valid users = @domain.com

        read only = No

my problem is it keeps on authenticating me and i think i doesn't recognize my smb/ldap.domain.com server.

my smb/ldap.domain.com server is working. I can ping, do the ssh on my smb/ldap.domain.com server from my new samba server. 

Is there a missing config? :-(

Best Regards,
