I have a samba PDC running on Centos4 with several hundred Windows PS's using 
it for authentication. 

I've just upgraded the fileserver which serves the users home directories to 
Centos5. The problem is how to get the upgraded fileserver to join the 
existing domain.

On the server JANUS I have an account for the upgraded fileserver 
in /etc/passwd same as before.

When I try and join the domain from the fileserver I get

[root at youngmunster ~]# net rpc join MEMBER  -U root -d 2
