Yes. REALM ist identical to the ad domain.

Keeping in mind that the Win2003 DC wasn´t setup by myself I´ll give
this a chance.

I´ve tried this too, still no success. Still I wonder why nslookup works
on XP and Linux don´t....
BTW: nslookup hostname.REALM works on both but not
_ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.REALM, this works only on XP...
Thanxs to Geir
