Joining a Windows Server 2008 RC1 Domain

I have been trying to join a Windows Server 2008 RC1 domain using Samba 
3.0 and Samba 3.2 with no success. Am I right in thinking that this 
doesn't work yet?

I saw an earlier thread entitlted "SPNEGO in Samba - Longhorn Server 
interop issues... - KRB5.CONF" from last year in which Todd Stecher said 
that he has "it all working". I added the default_realm into krb5.conf 
as he did and it still didn't work. I have no trouble using Kerberos 
with Windows Server 2008.

Any thoughts?

Since Windows Server 2008 is the only IPv6 enabled AD DC available, I 
need to be able to join using Samba 3.2 in order to test Samba's IPv6 

Let me know if traces are needed and I'll pass them on.

By the way I have tested Vista - Samba 3.2 IPv6 interoperability. It works!
