Are you sure you didn't mix that up?  The error messages are typical,
just reversed!  

Make sure you have no mapped drives to the server before you join the
domain.  In particular, don't have any drives open as a different user
to the one you use to join the domain (usually root).

In 2.2.x it sometimes helps to have added the domain to the server
first.  (You are not meant to need to do this, but when debugging I
would try it).
