You have to use the "createcomputer" parameter if you want to specify
the OUs.

Ex: net ads join createcomputer="Servers/Windows/Computers/AD

Subject: [Samba] joining an AD

Hi there -

I am trying to join the domain using the net ads join  command but keep
getting a " 

Bad option: Servers/Windows/Computers/AD
Failed to join domain: Invalid parameter

when I try to add the computer into the correct OU like so:

net ads join "Servers/Windows/Computers/AD

Is there a correct way to get this to work?

I'm on a Red Hat Enterprise 4 system with samba-3.0.25b-1.el4_6.4
