For one thing, messages seem to imply your clocks are not synchronized.  Check this first.  Second are you using a user who belongs to a LOT of groups, including nested groups?  If so this may push the limit of a UDP password change.

it try to join ads with samba 3.0.22 (SLES9 SP3) and got:

holu0001:~ # kinit <admin>
<admin at DOMAIN> Password:
kinit: NOTICE: ticket renewable lifetime is 1 week
holu0001:~ # net ads join
[2006/05/31 17:42:21, 0] libads/ldap.c:ads_add_machine_acct(1507)
  Warning: ads_set_machine_sd: Unexpected information received
ads_set_machine_password: Message stream modified
holu0001:~ # logout

It worked for month!

I joined aprox: 15 samba servers but now it didn't work.

It there something wrong with the AD (W2K3) or with my samba config?

The output of net ads join -d 10 is attached.
