[Samba] Unable to join domain?

I just setup a new domain controller after a power surge blew through 
the suppressor and fried the old one. AS far as I know, I did everything 
correct. But now when I try to join a machine to the domain it fails, 
claiming the username or password is incorrect.

# net join -U Administrator%%<PASSWORD> -S janus.eglifamily.name  (note: 
internal domain only, not internet connected)
Failed to join domain: failed to lookup DC info for domain 'EGLIFAMILY' 
over rpc: The attempted logon is invalid. This is either due to a bad 
username or authentication information.

But I KNOW the password I specified is correct! I wrote the password 
down when I provisioned the domain using samba-tool domain provision. So 
I'm at a HUGE loss as to what's going wrong. I've looked on the 
internet, but apparently my GoogleFu isn't strong today.

Please Help?
