I am trying to join a windows 2003 domain using a Gentoo samba server
v3.0.25rc3 and I am receiving the following message when the join fails:


Using short domain name -- MARKETSCAN

Failed to set servicePrincipalNames. Please ensure that

the DNS domain of this server matches the AD domain,

Or rejoin with using Domain Admin credentials.

Deleted account for 'SOLIDSNAKE' in realm 'MARKETSCAN.COM'

Failed to join domain: Type or value exists


Can anyone offer any advice on this problem?

I compiled samba using the "-with-dnsupdates" config flag.


Below is my smb.conf:



        netbios name = SolidSnake

        workgroup = MARKETSCAN

        realm = MARKETSCAN.COM

        server string = %h Samba Server, %v

        interfaces = eth0, lo

        bind interfaces only = Yes

        security = ADS

        log level = 3

        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m

        max log size = 50

        client signing = Yes

        load printers = No

        os level = 2

        preferred master = No

        local master = No

        domain master = No

        dns proxy = No

        ldap ssl = no

        idmap uid = 10000-20000

        idmap gid = 10000-20000

        template homedir = /home/MARKETSCAN/%U

        template shell = /bin/bash

        winbind enum users = Yes

        winbind enum groups = Yes

        winbind use default domain = Yes



        comment = Home Directory for %U

        path = /home/MARKETSCAN/%U

        valid users = /%D/%U

        create mask = 0700

        directory mask = 0700

        browseable = No



        comment = Public Share on %h

        path = /home/samba/public

        valid users = +users, "@MARKETSCAN\domain users"

        read only = No

        create mask = 0755



Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
