Default samba domain controller - ubuntu


I have been following the HOWTO on setting up a SAMBA primary domain controller for Ubuntu on the howtoforge.com site and I am having a little trouble. I searched the forums and found somebody that had similar trouble and they said they resolved it, but I am unsure how. I am on page 5 of the tutorial where you type smbpasswd -a tom and after I enter the password for user tom i get this error:

tdb_update_sam: failing to store a SAM_ACCOUNT for [tom] without a primary group RID
Failed to add entry for user tom.
Failed to modify password entry for user tom.

I came across this page on the forums with similar trouble, http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/sho...ain+controller
but I dont know what the fix is for it. If anybody can shed some light on how or what I might be doing wrong I would really appreciate it.
