This probably means that at the time filehost joined our AD, it was 
still having a old 'hostname -f' output, right? The 'hostname -f' is 
what determines the dNSHostName in AD i guess?

So, I guess with correcting the hostname to our new domain, I forgot to 
update /etc/hosts. ('old domain' and 'new domain' in this case has 
nothing to do with the samba.company.com, but long time ago we really 
had a different 'company.com')

So... as this is working in production, I don't want to mess around 
immediately, but I guess that the fastest fix is to 'unjoin' filehost, 
and rejoin it? (this time with hostname -f showing the CURRENT fqdn)
