Hi Adam & Torsten.

 Thanks for the help. As Adam said my problem was the update issue. I
remarked the remote update option (Default Computer -> Network -> System
policies update), setting it to do automatically update. Now my domain is
working all right.
  I have another question: How can I create a Power User using Linux? I have
some machines that requires a Power User to access some hardware components,
but I didn't find how to do that.

Thanks again,
