[Samba] Problems joining NT Domain

I'm trying to configure Winbindd on a Linux/390 system.  I'm not getting any of the crashes or obvious errors, but I can't join the NT domain using the smbpasswd command.  Included below is a portion
of the -D 99 debug listing.

I can ping the PDC under it's FQDN, and I've also added it's IP address to LMHOSTS, but nothing changes.  I've also tried the smbpasswd command specifying the IP address of the PDC, but that doesn't
help either.

This is Samba 2.2.4, and the PDC is Windows NT 4.

Two possible issues come to mind.

1) My Samba server doesn't have a DNS entry of it's own (yet).

2) The machine is on a VM "Guest LAN" that doesn't support broadcast/multicast.  I am connected to a WINS server though, and I can browse and access shares from Windows.

Does anyone have any idea what might be going on here?  Where is IP address "" coming from?

Thanks much.
