Adding windows Computer to domain (samba)


I'm trying to add this pc to the domain, the samba is configured as a domain master, yet the PC im trying to add, keeps saying that it cannot add the computer to the domain because the username password (in this case it's root) does not exist?!?

What does this actualy mean?

Is there something specific to do in Samba so I can add computers to the domain? If so, what is it?

You nan only join a domain using a windows domain administrator account. try adding a windows account for root:
smbpasswd -a root
