I saw this with Samba 3.0.24 on Ubuntu Feisty 7.04. Actually I've seen 
quite a bit different behavior from 3.0.22 on Edgy 6.10 with EAs and 
ACLs which I'm trying to figure out some workarounds. But that's off 
topic for this discussion.

You must make sure that the hostname set in /etc/hostname and what you 
have for your server string are exactly the same. At least that's how I 
fixed it. On Edgy 6.10/Samba 3.0.22, I didn't have to do this.

Due to unforseen circumstances I've been forced to start over but using the exact instructions as before I been unable to get anywhere. I cannot net join ads at all. I get this message.
