First part (new computer script) is already done and it runs supervised by some sysadmins.

Second part (join domain) is done by some low profile assistants, and for security reasons we need that no one adds a machine by mistake or intentionally.

In Samba 3 (NT4 PDC style) it was enough with modifying "add machine script" parameter, but I've been testing different settings without success.

And I know is a common policy in some environments:

In that article they discuss about "Add workstations to domain" right.
Can I enforce that via smb.conf or any other setting?
