That problem almost drive me wild.
I had a problem with White Box EL 3 (RHEL3 in fact) when I upgraded it
to 3.0.6, the problem was about kerberos tickets. The enviroment was a
2000 SP2 hybird PDC and linux machine was just a member.
I tried recently with version 3.0.7 wich the RPM package from
samba.org, what was suposed to solve that problem, but still failed.
Solution, Downgrade to original distro samba version. 3.0.0. Now
everything working right. If you don't want a downgrade, and the PDC is
working in hybrid mode, just try RPC join to the domain, not ADS. Good
luck, and better if you provide more info about your enviroment and your
More information about the samba
