You seem to be correct :-

Join to 'UK' is OK

Note this is an OpenVMS server, not Linux/Unix.

Hi Robert,

I've already tried that and it wouldn't work :( If I understand it
correctly, then net writes the account password for the joining
account to the "secrets.tdb" file and if that file still is there say
after a reboot then net ads testjoin should not ask for a password
