I am trying to get an xp machine to join a samba 3.0 pdc domain.
I keep getting the following error below. I can view the pdc shares with
no problem. Can anyone point me in the correct direction on getting this
fixed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

case, verify that the domain name is properly registered with WINS.

If you are certain that the name is not a NetBIOS domain name, then the

Common causes of this error include the following:

- The DNS SRV record is not registered in DNS.

child zone:
