Access denied when trying to join machines to samba PDC
Hi, I just configured a┬*Samba┬*PDC on my network, but every time I try to add a machine to the domain I am told "AccessDenied"

I followed the instructions on the ubuntu help site here:┬*

But still I am unable to join machines to the domain.

Here is the output of testparm, hope its usefull:
