After setting up the samba make sure you add root

smbpasswd -a root

If you get the above error try this:

smbpasswd -a -m $machinename

(the machine you are trying to join to the domain)

you might get the error the group ‘machines does not exist.

addgroup machines

try again now you should be able to add the machine name and join the doamin.

Look at the /var/log/samba/log.machinename for more details of the errors you get.
