Do you have a user called 'athena' ?

If you do have a user called 'athena', why are you being asked for the 
'Administrator' password ?

I ask these questions because if I log into Unix domain member as a 
normal user, I have to use '-U Administrator' to get asked for the 
Administrator password.

If I use a user that isn't a domain user, I just get asked for password 
for 'DOMAIN\username' where 'username' is the local user, so this 
doesn't work.

If I do use '-U Administrator', I get asked for the Administrator 
password and the command works.

If I login as a Domain user with a valid kerberos ticket and run the 
command, the command works and produces output like this:

dwVersion                   : 0xece0205
fBootMethod                 : DNS_BOOT_METHOD_DIRECTORY
fAdminConfigured            : FALSE
fAllowUpdate                : TRUE
fDsAvailable                : TRUE
pszServerName               : DC4.samdom.example.com
pszDsContainer              :
