net rpc join member -S FRANKFURT -U rwiegand

Create of workstation account failed
Unable to join domain DOMAIN.

This is the message I'm getting when I try joining a Solaris 9/samba 
3.0.10 member server

Looks like I'm missing something here?  My goal is to have LAN users 
authenticate via a samba PDC when they pass through a Squid server to 
the internet. I'm trying to keep it simple for now.  So I'm not using 
AD, but I will have to set this up in the near future as well.
