I do want to say that this is on our radar. A colleague of mine
recently posted a patch to create computer accounts on the DC ready for
an offline/read-only join from windows, targeting this script:
I don't know if Samba's client tools can likewise join such a pre-
created account, but that is clearly the next step.
Perhaps someone could patch 'net ads join machinepass=PASS' to
speculatively use that password and just write it in to the Samba DB if
it is correct, rather than re-creating the account (perhaps only if
readonly=yes is set).
