Pulling my hair out because of a simple problem

Thanks John that was it.

To join the domain

Create the computer in the Win2K Computer and User Admin app.

Then in VMS
$ mc samba_root:[bin]smbpasswd -r My-PDC -j My-Domain "-U" Username -s

It prompts you for a password on the account used... Bingo

If anything I would have guessed VMS put everything in UPPER case unless
quoted.  Thanks again.

Unless you have set your process conventions otherwise, DCL defaults to 
converting all arguments that are not in quotes to lower case.
