Ah, so that's what you want to do. Using samba it's easy. Install enough
of samba to get the net command. Usually samba-client is enough:

Remove the myserver$ machine account on the DC.

On the client make a token /etc/samba/smb.conf:

workgroup = your.dc.hostname
security = ADS
kerberos method = system keytab

Then it's just:
net ads join -UAdministrator
