[Samba] Cant Join Win 2003 AD in Native Mode

We are having trouble configuring Samba 3.021on Solaris 8 to join a Win 2003
ADS in native mode.

The error we are getting is :

[2006/01/04 10:06:26, 0] utils/net_ads.c:ads_startup(191)
  ads_connect: Strong(er) authentication required

I have read in some older postings this could be due to the fact that Samba
did not support signing for LDAP certificates (our Win 2003 server is set up
with LDAP Server Siginig = Requires Signing).

Is this still the case and if so is there a workaround other than changing
the setting. Conversely, if this is no longer the case what else could be
causing this error ?
