[Samba] SAMBA with LDAP - net join fails

I have performed all the steps from John Tepstra's "Samba-3 by Example" 20 
April 2005 to Chapter 5, step 21, pg 146.
(My goal is to have SAMBA with LDAP and no MS Windows servers.)

Everything appears to work properly to this point.

When I perform the command: (amd is the name of this test server)

net rpc join -S AMD -U root%not24get

I get the error:

Could not connect to server AMD
The username or password was not correct.

Adding debug -d 1, I get the following additional information:
[2005/04/20 17:00:23, 1] utils/net_rpc.c:run_rpc_command(139)
  rpc command function failed! (NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED)
[2005/04/20 17:00:23, 1] libsmb/cliconnect.c:cli_full_connection(1494)
  failed session setup with NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE
Could not connect to server AMD
The username or password was not correct.

When restarting winbindd before trying to join the domain, I get the 
following in the windbindd error log:

[2005/04/20 16:36:54, 0] lib/smbldap.c:smbldap_open_connection(599)
  ldap_initialize: Bad parameter to an ldap routine
[2005/04/20 16:36:54, 1] lib/smbldap.c:another_ldap_try(1011)
  Connection to LDAP server failed for the 1 try!
[2005/04/20 16:37:09, 0] sam/idmap.c:idmap_init(138)
  idmap_init: failed to initialize remote backend!
[2005/04/20 16:37:09, 1] nsswitch/winbindd.c:main(897)
  Could not init idmap -- netlogon proxy only

The following occurs in samba IP (machine) log, which I would expect.

[2005/04/20 16:29:04, 0] rpc_server/srv_netlog_nt.c:get_md4pw(244)
  get_md4pw: Workstation AMD$: no account in domain

the /etc/nsswitch.conf file has the following:

passwd: compat ldap
shadow: files ldap
group:  compat ldap

hosts:  files dns wins

System is running SuSE 9.2 with Samba 3.0.14a-.1-SUSE

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
