Failed to set servicePrincipalNames

I am experiencing a weird problem with the net ads join.
# ./net ads join -U SIDSMIG at SIDMAR.BE
SIDSMIG at SIDMAR.BE's password:
Using short domain name -- DOSIM000
Failed to set servicePrincipalNames. Please ensure that
the DNS domain of this server matches the AD domain,
Or rejoin with using Domain Admin credentials.
[2008/04/11 16:31:25, 0] libads/ldap.c:ads_leave_realm(3003)
  Host account for sv104r does not exist.
Disabled account for 'SV104R' in realm 'SIDMAR.BE'
Failed to join domain: Operations error

So if it can't find the host account, how is it able to disable it??
I assume that I have enough privileges since it can disable the computer object in AD.

Any help?

Met vriendelijke groet
Best regards
Bien à vous
