[Samba] samba virtual server x domain membership

I have a samba server (version 3.6) named 'lnbxservcid' which is already
a member of a domain whose PDC is another samba server (version 3.4).
I'm using the standard samba3 packages from centos and from servnet (as
CentOS.4 comes with only samba 3.0.x, but later CentOS releases came
with samba3-3.4.x packages).
I wish to create on the lnxservcid machine another samba server (a
virtual server) so I don't need to change login scripts and windows
client UNC paths that point to a server which will be retired. The idea
is each virtual server will show it's own set of shares.
I tryed a test setup following instructions from:
On restart, domain member clients (windows machines) can connect to
lnxservcid normally. But trying to connect to lnxservteste shows a login
prompt, and no domain user works.
It looks like I have to add machine lnxservteste to the domain. But
neither "net join" or "smbpasswd" have options to tell the name of the
machine (virtual server) to join, and lnxservcid is already joined.
I changed lnxservcid /etc/samba/smb.conf adding "netbios aliases", "smb
ports" and "include" statements:
netbios name = lnxservcid
security = domain
netbios aliases = lnxservteste
smb ports = 139
include = /etc/samba/smb-%L.conf
And then I created /etc/samba/smb-lnxservteste.conf
workgroup = IBP
netbios name = lnxservteste
path = /mnt/teste
Should I point net join or smbpasswd to smb-lnxservteste.conf file? Or
should I change the local hostname to tool those utilites? Or isn't this
setup supposed to work? No "samba virtual server" tutorial I found on
google told about domain membership. :-(
And by the way, will the need to use "smb ports = 139" prevent Windows 7
clients from using my servers? So far I tried with only Windows XP clients.
