Hi people,
I'm trying to join a linux SuSE 10.0+samba 3.0.20 box to an ADS-Win2003 

As I configured /etc/krb5.conf, /etc/nsswitch.conf and /etc/samba/smb.conf, 
I try to join the ADS with:

root # net ads join <domainname> -U Administrator%<Admin's passwd>

the system replays:

Using short domain name -- <DOMAIN NETBIOS NAME>

then freezes, i.e. no prompt returns. I wait several minutes, then from 
another console I typed:

root # net ads testjoin

and system replays:

Join is OK.

at this point I breaked (Ctrl-C) the freezed prompt. Again, net ads testjoin 
replays Join is OK.

All this appears to me something wrong....

Any ideas? what's wrong?
