Hi !

     I've got a server with Samba 3.5.3 with LDAP backend running on it.

     When I want to add a workstation I've got a strange result

     First there is the workstation LDAP account :

dn: cn=TOTO$,ou=machines,o=ADM-SC,dc=univ-rouen,dc=fr
objectClass: top
objectClass: person
objectClass: posixAccount
objectClass: sambaSamAccount
cn: TOTO$
sn: TOTO$
uid: TOTO$
uidNumber: 5037
gidNumber: 5000
loginShell: /bin/false
homeDirectory: /dev/null
gecos: Machine TOTO
sambaSID: S-1-5-21-1597492338-1443626506-322857960-11074

     When I do the 'smbpasswd -am TOTO' I've got no error but my 
workstation account becomes a user account !!!
     When I do 'pdbedit -v TOTO$' I've got this result :

smbldap_search_domain_info: Searching
