You have to add an user account first (for the user, not the machine). It is decribed on this page at the top:

Don't you have to add accounts for the windows pc's also for domain logons to work?
No, not manually. If you join the domain with a windows PC, the machine account is created automatically by the add machine script defined in the samba.conf.
