[Samba] net rpc testjoin error

I ran the Win7_Samba3DomainMember.reg file that comes with the samba-docs
package. The contents are below. Does that 'net rpc testjoin' failure mean
anything? I was able to join a different Win7 machine to the domain during
testing. It seems to have  stopped working. But I didn't try that 'net rpc
testjoin' test on the PDC until now.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
