Change it to security = server ...

I remember fighting with the same problem weeks ago; which seems like
months. :) 

Do a last test: Just delete the domain admin directive and do a smbpasswd -a
root. Give this account a different password than the linux root and try
joining the domain again with this new root/newpassd combo. For me the
@group never worked, be it domain join or printer add/admin. Maybe it works
for you too...
