Okay -- thanks for this pointer.

One more question -- using sites and services, if you rename 
'default-first-site' to something else, are the results bad?

I think we did rename it to our our location name -- which generated an 
error AFTER trying to join another machine to the AD. After renaming it 
back to default-first-site, we were able to join machines normally.

I'm not sure what happens deep down with these commands.
