Hi Mark,

Not sure if you've resolved this yet, but how do you specify logon 
servers in your smb.conf?  Do you explicitly list them or do you rely 
upon DNS to find them?

Here is what a successful run of the same command issued by me on 3.0.30

To troubleshoot the missing logon servers, if you search via DNS, try a 
manual search from the host in question with the following:

host -t srv _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.<insert realm here>

Or you might list your DCs and see if that makes a difference.

Also, what is the output of 'net ads testjoin -d 3' ?

(If you continue to have issues, please post a sanitized smb.conf.)
