Hi all! have been having a lot of trouble with trying to get samba 3
client to join a windows 2003 domain, any help would be greatly

vanilla samba 3.0.14a install on solaris 5.8 in 64bit environment with
openldap and kerberos 5 1.3.2 libraries.

when trying to join the domain, getting 

box# net ads join -Uuser at SOME.DOMAIN.FOO%foo
[2005/04/29 15:26:18, 0] libads/kerberos.c:ads_kinit_password(146)
  kerberos_kinit_password user at SOME.DOMAIN.FOO failed: Cannot resolve
network address for KDC in requested realm
[2005/04/29 15:26:18, 0] utils/net_ads.c:ads_startup(191)
  ads_connect: Cannot resolve network address for KDC in requested realm

part of the snoop off of the same box:
  adc -> box    LDAP R port=37139 Bind Response SASL Bind In Progress
  box -> adc   DNS C _kerberos._tcp.SOME.DOMAIN.FOO. Internet Unknown
(33) ?
  adc -> box    DNS R _kerberos._tcp.SOME.DOMAIN.FOO. Internet Unknown

kinit fails on something else, krb5.conf and smb.conf are plain vanilla
out of the documentation.

DNS servers used on the client (box) are windows 2003 ADC (adc).
