Your very first post says that RSAT hangs when you try to view the
security tab, this is where the NTFS permissions are viewed/changed and
to do this, the user must be known to the underlying OS

If you are trying to alter something on the DC, it gets a bit easier,
as this uses idmap.ldb and ALL the users & groups are known to the OS,
provided libnss_winbind etc is set up correctly.

I do not understand what the user account you are setting up is for and
you do not need to set up the computer account, 'net ads join -U
Administrator' will do this for you.

This is probably because you do not need to do this, set up smb.conf
etc correctly, stop all Samba processes and then run 'net ads join -U
Administrator' enter Administrators password when prompted and the
computer account will be created for you.

Let me guess, The instructions are for joining to a windows AD DC ?
