I have read the SAMBA Project Documentation chapter 7, but I am having
troubles joining an NT domain.

I have used server manager on the PDC (testnt-06) to create the machine
account for Linux samba server (testnt-20).  I made sure that all smb
and nmb process are not running. I get the following (ip address have
been blocked):

[root at testnt-20 mintadmn]# smbpasswd -j test_domain -r testnt-06 -D 4
added interface
resolve_lmhosts: Attempting lmhosts lookup for name TESTNT-06<0x20>
getlmhostsent: lmhost entry: localhost 
resolve_hosts: Attempting host lookup for name TESTNT-06<0x20>

password for domain TEST_DOMAIN.
Unable to join domain TEST_DOMAIN.

Any help would be great.  Thank you for your time.
