My smb.conf file looks like this

workgroup = OURDOMAIN
security = ADS
realm = OURDOMAIN.com
password server = OURSERVER
encrypt passwords = yes
add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd %u
hosts allow = 192.168.X. 127.
winbind uid = 10000-20000
winbind gid = 10000-20000

comment = Home Directories
browseable = no
writable = yes
valid users = %S
create mode = 0700
directory mode = 0775

When I try to join the domain I do the following:

./net ads join -w OURDOMAIN -U administrator

and the response is this

kerberos_kinit_password administrator at EKI-CONSULTING.COM failed: Cannot
find KDC for requested realm

Any solutions/ideas?
