Even computers have passwords in AD and no, you don't set it, it is set
for you and is replaced every month.

If you run this on a DC:

ldbsearch -H /var/lib/samba/private/sam.ldb -b
dc=samdom,dc=example,dc=com -s sub
'(&(objectclass=computer)(name=devstation))' unicodepwd

You can see the encoded password.

Just replace the data with your data.
