	I try to join a samba domain with a Win2k Server. The result is a box with the message:
	The following error occured validating the name "myDomainName"
	This condition may be caused by a DNS lookup problem. For information about trouble shooting common DNS lookup problems, please see the following Microsoft Web site: http://..../...
	The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.

	It seems that a record lacked in the DNS but I cannot find which one.

	Any clue ?

my smb.conf:
