Trouble when re-joining a NT Domain

I'm trying to join a Samba 2.0.7 server to a NT Domain (say THE_DOMAIN). When
the domain administrator added my server (say GREAT_SERVER), I did smbpasswd -j
THE_DOMAIN. I did not pass a "-r" parameter because I had configured password
server = * (broadcast).

I was succesfully joining the domain, but I didn't remember I did already
joined, and I relaunched that order: smbpasswd -j THE_DOMAIN. Now I get this:

cli_net_auth2: Error NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED
cli_nt_setup_creds: auth2 challenge failed
modify_trust_password: unable to setup the PDC credentials to machine TEJAT. Error was : NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED.
2000/07/10 14:52:54 : change_trust_account_password: Failed to change password for domain UPVNET.
Unable to join domain UPVNET.

What can I do? (besides removing GREAT_SERVER from THE_DOMAIN and adding it
again) :-?

Please, send answer to pgq at (or crosspost it)

Thank you.
