I'm stumped. I'm trying to join a machine to a domain and I get this :

# samba-tool domain join campus.mcgill.ca DC -Udavid.salib at CAMPUS.MCGILL.CA
Finding a writeable DC for domain 'campus.mcgill.ca'
Found DC DC01.campus.MCGILL.CA
Password for [david.salib at CAMPUS.MCGILL.CA]:
workgroup is CAMPUS
realm is campus.MCGILL.CA
checking sAMAccountName
Adding CN=SMB4TEST,OU=Domain Controllers,DC=campus,DC=MCGILL,DC=CA
Join failed - cleaning up

  File "/usr/local/samba/lib/python2.7/site-packages/samba/join.py", line 499, in join_add_objects

Seems to me like changing the OU which I'm trying to join would fix the issue, but I can't find the switch to specify it (or the format).
