this error suddenlly stoped appearing :-/
i only edited the permsision of the winbindd_privileged to 777
it makes me think more that it is irreleavent
however i am still not sure
to be safe i will set the permision to readwrite to every one (permision =777)

now all what happen is this:

[root at linuxserver ~]# net join -U Administrator
Administrator's password:
Failed to join domain: Operations error
ADS join did not work, falling back to RPC...
Unable to find a suitable server
