Univention recomments 4-8 GB, depending on the size of the environment:

I joined my last DC (4 GB RAM) to a domain with 200 users/~50 groups/280 
computer accounts without any problems.

What exacltly was the error you got during the domain join? And what 
version of Samba are you running (self compiled or package)?
