[Samba] Help with ADS authentication and Samba

When I dig the RHEL server, it actually returns the DC:

160.16.172.in-addr.arpa. 3600   IN      SOA     animal.XXX.com. hostmaster.XXX.com. 77337 900 600 86400 3600

The system that is working returns its correct name (ccdubrep.XXX.com)

I added the server to the windows DNS table, and the dig now shows correctly.

However it is still popping up a login box.

Not the same problem I have then. Shame. I can force the domain and it works.

Apologies, I meant dig -x rhel5u5's IP, not that of the DC. dig should return the FQDN, not just rhel5u5.
