Can Vista Add as a member in Samba PDC


Guys I have a CentOS 5 as a samba+ldap linux PDC.

It works excellent for all XP's which connect.

I need to add 5 Vista Boxes also.

When i try to join the domain windows says

Code:
The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "MYDOMAINNAME":

The specified computer account could not be found. Contact an administrator to verify the account is in the domain. If the account has been deleted unjoin, reboot, and rejoin the domain
On the server in the log i get this. I desperately need help as we cannot afford AD for the sake of these five machines.

Code:
Use of uninitialized value in substitution (s///) at /usr/local/sbin//smbldap_tools.pm line 140, <CONFIGFILE> line 12.
stty: standard input: Inappropriate ioctl for device
Use of uninitialized value in chomp at /usr/local/sbin/smbldap-useradd line 270.
stty: standard input: Inappropriate ioctl for device
stty: standard input: Inappropriate ioctl for device
Use of uninitialized value in chomp at /usr/local/sbin/smbldap-useradd line 276.
stty: standard input: Inappropriate ioctl for device
Use of uninitialized value in string ne at /usr/local/sbin/smbldap-useradd line 280.
Use of uninitialized value in string ne at /usr/local/sbin/smbldap-useradd line 280.
The good news is it creates the machine account in my ldap beautifully.

The second time when i try again it says

Code:
The specified account already exists
Server Log:
Code:
[2009/04/20 19:24:04, 0] passdb/pdb_get_set.c:pdb_get_group_sid(211)
  pdb_get_group_sid: Failed to find Unix account for hariharanmad-pc$

  pdb_get_group_sid: Failed to find Unix account for hariharanmad-pc$



Im using the IDEALX scripts.

I have disabled "Digititally encrypt or sign secure channel data" and the remaining that i need to do in xp.

I have also changed Local security setting to Send LM and NTLM - Use NTLMv2 security if negotiated.

I find that lot of ubuntu users have had luck with vista as pdc...

Please let me know what input you need from my configs... Please help me friends.

Thanks in Advance,

Harry
