unless i'm wrong, it's not enough to just add the user with smbpasswd. you also have to create a system user account. that might be the problem. you can do that with adduser, using /dev/null for the home directory.

You should 've used the following command to add the user: smbpasswd -m -a username

Since the machines that you join to the domain are called "machine accounts", the -m switch tells smbpasswd to add a machine account. The above command will not prompt you for a password.

Hope this helps.
