I examined that Windows Server 2008 R2 can join Samba 3.5.6
domain. Only to need to change is:

> HKLM\System\CCS\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters
> DWORD DomainCompatibilityMode = 1
> DWORD DNSNameResolutionRequired = 0

as described at https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Windows7

According to your error message, DNSNameResolutionRequired is not yet
