I have never had to deal with a W2K AD server, but from my understanding
W2K didn't have the DNS records in AD, so I wondered if yours didn't
either. I am running out of ideas now.
Have you tried Tim's patch ?
Just in case you don't know how to apply the patch, it is pretty simple,
it just involves commenting out three lines, so it might be easier to
open 'join.py (/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/samba/join.py on my DC),
find these lines:
if ctx.dns_backend != "NONE":
Line 1405 in my version, under ' def do_join(ctx):'
just comment out those three lines, save & close, then try the join again.
