Sorry removed the second command since you've already put him back in the system database.

FYI the command was:
useradd [username]

The authentication is set to the Domain so they should be using the domain password .

Connect further...control easier

        workgroup = ABC
        security = DOMAIN
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        password server = *
        wins server = xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
        guest ok = no
