You don't say, but I guess that you joined the domain with the 
smbpasswd command and used the -U option to specify the administrative
username. This did not work on big-endian machines for 2.2.2 (I don't 
recall what version it got fixed but I think it was 2.2.4) You need to
go to the Domain controller and remove the machine from the domain,
then add the machine again. Next run smbpasswd on the Unix box but
do not use the -U option.
