SAMBA PDC > "Username could not be found" when attempting to add WinXP client to dom

Hi there.

Am running a DHCP Server and DNS on the gateway. The DHCP is set to supply all clients with a WINS server IP.
I also disabled these services and tried to get SAMBA again, but the problem remained.

I Have the following smb.conf:

        interfaces = eth2,lo
	bind interfaces only = yes
        netbios name = SOL
#same as the domain name according to the DHCP/DNS
        workgroup = MY.DOM           
        domain master = yes
        local master = yes
        preferred master = yes
        os level = 65
        security = user
        domain logons = yes              
        time server = yes
	unix password sync = Yes
	passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
	wins support = Yes
	add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd −m %u 
	delete user scrip t = /usr/sbin/userdel −r %u
	add group script = /usr/sbin/groupadd %g 
	delete group script = /usr/sbin/groupdel %g 
	add user to group script = /usr/sbin/usermod −G  %g %u
	add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd −s /bin/false −d /tmp %u
        path = /var/lib/samba/netlogon
        writable = no
        browsable = no
        path = /var/lib/samba/netlogon/profiles
        browsable = no
        writable = yes
        create mask = 0600
        directory mask = 0700
Have also added a root account to the smbpasswd backend (this is actually the account I am trying to sign into when adding the XP client to the domain).

Was actually able to join a windows workgroup using an XP client and login to a share hosted on samba, just can't join a domain .

# cat smbpasswd
Thanks for time.
