[Samba] Help for Samba 3 and Win ADS

Thanks for that hint.
I downloaded the HOTO and tried to make everything like descibed there but
it is still not working ;-(

I set the 'security = domain" the 'workgroup = MYDOMAIN' and the 'password
server = MYWINPDC' in the smb.conf and restartet samba.
After that I tried the 'net join -S MYWINPDC -UMyAdmin%MyPassword' and get
the following result:

'realm must be set in smb.conf for ADS join to succeed.
ADS join did not work, faling back to RPC...
Joined domain MYDOMAIN'

>From the PDC I can see the sambe server in ADS and in the network
neighborhood. If I try to connect samba asks for a username and password
(should be OK with the DOMAIN-Admin.....). So I type in the Admin and
PAssword but without getting a connection.
In the logfile on the samba server there are the following lines in

'[2003/10/28 10:18:50, 0] auth/auth_util.c:make_server_info_info3(1017)
  make_server_info_info3: pdb_init_sam failed!
[2003/10/28 10:18:50, 0] auth/auth_util.c:make_server_info_info3(1017)
  make_server_info_info3: pdb_init_sam failed!
[2003/10/28 10:19:28, 0] auth/auth_util.c:make_server_info_info3(1017)
  nake_server_info_info3: pdb_init_sam failed!'

Any ideas wahts going wrong here?
