[Samba] Samba Authenticate against Active Directory

I'm trying to use the Samba Serrver Configuration tool to make Samba
authenticate and authorize users against our Active Directory Server. But
I'm doing something wrong since I can't get it to work.

Our network has the AD at and the domain in ALFA-MOVING. So in
the Server Settings dialog I have:

Authenicate mode: ADS
Authenticate Server:
Keberos Realm: ALFA-MOVING
Encrypt password: YES
Guest Account: No guest Accont

I don't know if it related but I also have done some settings in the
Autentication Configuration where I have checked Enable WinBind support and
in the Winbind Settings dialog:

Winbind Domain: ALFA-MOVING
Security model: ADS (there is a lowercase option to but it seems to be the
Winbind ADS realm: ALFA-MOVING
Winbind domain controller:
Template shell: /bin/sh

When trying to "join domain" it says nothing about failure or success but
when looking at the AD-server the server is not in the domain.

Thank you very much in advance
