Hi, I am trying to get my Samba server to join our Windows domain, but it fails with “Unable to find a suitable server”. I know this is kind of a site specific error, but I’m looking for any clues to anything I may have missed in building and configuring the Samba distribution. It is version 3.0.11. I am running 
$$ net rpc join -U adminuser%password
as root.

Less important is SWAT doesn’t work too. This is the error after attempting to open http://hostname:901.

PANIC: internal error

This is how I built Samba using Sun Forte C compiler 7.3

./configure --with-automount --with-libsmbclient --with-logfilebase=/var/tmp/samba/l
ogs --with-nisplushome --with-nisplussam

Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks.
