Subject: [Samba] NET ADS JOIN error

Can anyone shed some light on this error?  I can't seem to find any
information as to why it is failing.  Thanks.

USTR-MINT-A-1:~ # net ads join "United
States\Tredyffrin\Resources\Servers" -U trimblrd

Failed to pre-create the machine object in OU United

I have tried two different domain admin accounts and I get the same
error each time.  It strange since the object already exists in AD.
