[Samba] Join Server to Domain Fails

Hi list,

Would anyone please help me troubleshoot the following?

[root at myserver ~]# service smb status
smbd is stopped
nmbd is stopped
[root at myserver ~]# net rpc join -S MYPDC
Creation of workstation account failed
User specified does not have administrator privileges
Unable to join domain MYDOMAIN.
[root at myserver ~]#

I'm not sure why this would happen if my user specified (root by default,
yes?) has admin privileges.
