Hmmh, I thought the op uses two samba3 (NT) style domain with 
thousands of users.

No and no,
M$ trys to set up new windows client installations to not work with NT-
Domains. And yes, that is ok if security is the thing what one prefers. 

But sometimes sysadmins has other reasons to use old software and wish

@ Rodrigo Abrantes Antunes
An idea to get things to work:

Setup a testbed with current samba version.
Their are to many changes from old samba3 to current release. You should 
not expect that old config statements will work with newer releases of 
samba. So try to find out which server statements in smb.conf maps to 
your old behaviour.

If this is OK for you, try the domain join. But do not expect, that the join 
command works as described in the old docs. You are using much newer 

And yes, NT style domains are insecure from the first day I have seen 
them. Are Ad domains secure???
