I have had this problem before. I did two things...
Made sure smb is NOT running
Delete the server in the domain via srvmgr.exe and then issue the command to
join the domain. Hope this helps.

Subject: [Samba] Unable to join W2K domain

Hello list,

I'm trying to join the W2K domain, but without success. 
After typing the following line
/usr/local/samba/bin/smbpasswd -j WORLD -r SRV5N -U adm
this message apears:
Unable to join domain WORLD

The content of smb.conf:

netbios name = SRVSX
security = domain
domain logons = yes
workgroup= WORLD
password server = SRV5N
keep alive = 30
os level = 0
domain master = no
local master = no
preferred master = no
username level = 8
password level = 8
encrypt passwords = yes
interfaces =
wins server =

(os: solaris2.6, samba: 2.2.2)

What's wrong?

Thanks in advance
