We have about 40 samba servers in our domain. The two newest ones are throwing an error we've never seen before.

[root at vmhost06a samba]# net join
Enter root's password:
dos charset 'CP850' unavailable - using ASCII
convert_string_talloc: Conversion not supported.
Failed to join domain: failed to lookup DC info for domain 'MYCHARTS.MD' over rpc: Memory allocation error
ADS join did not work, falling back to RPC...
convert_string_talloc: Conversion not supported.
Connection failed: NT_STATUS_NO_MEMORY
Enter root's password:
convert_string_talloc: Conversion not supported.
Could not connect to server RPT01
Connection failed: NT_STATUS_NO_MEMORY
Any thoughts?

Possibly related: It alwways says "could not connect to server RPT01." I'm not sure why it says this since RPT01 is our oldest domain controller and it is not referenced in any of the config files. Only servers DC01 and TS04 are mentioned in krb5.conf. I suppose it must be getting it from DNS, but why only RPT01?

Samba version info follows...

[root at vmhost06a samba]# rpm -qa|grep -i samba
