My apprentice had no problem adding a windows-machine to his little
 On the command-line:
   smbpasswd -a root
 In lwat:
   Add a machine account for the machine to joined
     (without any "$" in the account-name)
   check the "Samba host" checkbox
 On windows-workstation:
   Join the machine the normal way, using the root account.

I've experienced that even if one rewrite smb.conf to use the script
smbaddclient.pl, things wont work. but I'm not sure why.

He did not need to do no change at all in smb.conf.
