[Samba] Member Server in Active Directory

I'm trying to join a  Samba 3.0.4 (compiled from source on Debian) to an 
Active Directory as a member server. I believe Kerberos is configured 
correctly as kinit creates a ticket for the realm. Executables appear to have 
support for Kerberos and LDAP (smbd -b | grep KRB and grep LDAP) return OK.

When I try to join the AD with
   net ads join -U myadminusername
I'm prompted for my password but then get: 
   Host account for inpsamo-debian already exists - modifying old account
   ads_add_machine_acct: No such object
   ads_join_realm: No such object

I only have admin rights for an ou of the Active Directory. Here is a Windows 
LDP search of my ou:

ldap_search_s(ld, "DC=pwr,DC=int,DC=edited,DC=com", 2, "(ou=SAMO)", attrList,  
0, &msg)
Result <0>: (null)
Matched DNs: 
Getting 1 entries:
>> Dn: OU=SAMO,OU=Mediterranean Coast 
	2> objectClass: top; organizationalUnit; 
	1> ou: SAMO; 
	1> description: SAMO; 
	1> distinguishedName: OU=SAMO,OU=Mediterranean Coast 
	1> name: SAMO; 
	1> canonicalName: pwr.int.edited.com/PWR/Mediterranean Coast Network/SAMO; 

I guess my question is could it be how my realm is configured 
(PWR.INT.EDITED.COM) or what else could keep me from joining the directory?

Current smb.conf:
   unix charset = LOCALE
   workgroup = PWR 
   server string = Samba 3.0.2
   security = ADS
   username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
   log level = 1
   syslog = 0
   log file = /var/log/samba/%m
   max log size = 50
   printcap name = CUPS
   ldap ssl = no
   idmap uid = 10000-20000
   idmap gid = 10000-20000
   template primary group = "Domain Users"
   template shell = /bin/bash
   winbind separator = +
   printing = cups

   comment = Home Directories
   valid users = %S
   read only = No
   browseable = No

Thanks for any ideas...
