[Samba] samba4 LDAP Timeout - Wrong IP?

Greetings, all.

I am trying to join a samba4 server to an existing Windows SBS 2003 domain
as a DC.  I've compiled samba4 from git and am following the howto.  On what
is essentially the first step, I get a "failed to connect" error with an
ldap:// url, and the message NT_STATUS_IO_TIMEOUT.  In reviewing an strace,
it looks to me like it might be trying to connect to the wrong IP.

The command I'm using is: # strace -o ~/samba-join.log bin/samba-tool join
ba-cam.local DC -Uadministrator --realm=ba-cam.local -d10 &>

I've put pastes up of the -d10 output of samba-tool, and the strace.

samba-tool output: http://pastey.net/145858
strace log: http://pastey.net/145857

Note that it appears to correctly find the IP of the PDC (,
but in the strace on lines 5486 and 5496, it's talking about a, which will of course time out.

Am I doing something wrong?  Is this a bug?  Is there a way around this?
