Can you fill in a few details please?

What version of Samba?
Has the Domain Controller function already been implemented in your environment?
If so, is there only one (PDC)? Or multiple?
What are the OSes of your client machines?
Have the client machines been joined to your domain?
Have you downloaded and are using the srvtools.exe from MS?

The function is fairly simple with the MS Administration tools, but the whole thing will only work if all the pieces are configured correctly.
