I can managed a net ads join if I follow the following steps:
kinit User at REALM.COM
net ads status
net ads join

Only guess that the net ads status ends up causing my crednetials to be cached 
that net ads join makes use of. Just doing a kinit USER at REALM.COM ; net ads 
join, does not work.

Strange, but it works...
