root user domain login

I have linux server as domain controller for windows client.I have root user by default.which has entry in /etc/passwd file.But root user cannot perform domain login from windows machine.I have run "sudo smbpasswd -a root" so root user's entry is now in /etc/smbpasswd file also.but still root  can't  perform domain login.

You have to setup samba password for the user too. As root run command:

smbpasswd root

I don't know does it work with sudo.

Why don't create one more user under windows and same
under linux. Add it in samba with:

smbpasswd -a username

set password for it same as win password and give it a try.
