Maybe I am closer then I thought. 

I removed samba completely, reinstalled it, joined it to the domain, and
"net ads" sort of started to work, I got a "no credential in cache" from

And when doing a net view from a windows box, I get "access denied" and
the following in my logs.

where should I be looking?
