I don't know if you were helped. But, Here is what you need to do to join
ads domain.

1. you need a user in ADS with administrator privileges.

2. Support you have a user "joinuser" with Administrators membership. Create
the same user id on Unix too.

3. Run kinit to make sure your set up is proper. Times are in sync,
krb5.conf is proper etc.,

4. Now after you run kinit, set your LOGNAME environment variable to

5. Net join should be successful. If there is a time sync problem, set the
TZ env variable to GMT.

That should correct the problem.
Good luck.
