[Samba] Unable to join domain I think.

I have seen this before when my DNS was not setup correctly since I had an incorrect IP on the Samba server so I lacked a static DNS entry for the server.  When I checked AD the computer account was added so I just needed to fix the DNS entry.  Once I did I rejoined the domain without an error.
