Hi Christian.
PDC  is in network, Server 2008 is in network (gateway, there is a VPN between (over 100 
Mbps copper), firewall allows all traffic between these two networks, I 
can ping and telnet to all open ports on PDC. Three is also an BDC in 
the network. I use Fedora DS for LDAP and Samba 3.3. on 
both machines (PDC and BDC). I can add Server to domain with no problem.
Can this be related with x64 server version? I don't have these problems 
on Server 2008 32-bit in the same environment.
