K - my original post was a little long so I'll try this - short.

I have a Windows 2K Pro client who domain membership I trying to change 
over to a Samba 2.2.7 server which I've setup as a PDC.

When I try to change the membership of the client, I always get the 
following error:

The following error occurred validating the name "NONROUTABLE".
This condition may be caused by a DNS lookup problem ....<SNIP>
The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contracted.

The only traffic I see coming out of the client during this attempt domain 
membership change is a DNS SRV query to my Solaris DNS server for 
"_ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.NONROUTABLE".  My Solaris DNS server doesn't current 
support SRV records.  I think I heard a rumor that BIND 9 supposedly 
supports this.

Does anyone know how I can setup my client so that it doesn't look for this 
DNS SRV entry and start talking to my Samba PDC ?
