Hi John,

0)Yes secrets.tdb was the file i was looking for.

1) But still a question remains ->

After copying secrets.tdb i had to do "net ads join -U <username>".
After this i was successfully connected to the domain.
( Also i would guess here that copying secrets.tdb was not necessary because
even without that i could join domain, right?)

In earlier distro i simply did "net ads join" without explicitly
mentioning my username.
( my credentials were of course there via kinit ) How come?

Any ideas here?
