yes you are right that was a typo in the mail: "Host not  found: 3(NXDOMAIN)"

my DC hostname is dc01. The command you gave me returns a quite long 
output about "GENSEC" and also something interesting:

resolve_lmhosts: Attempting lmhosts lookup for name dc01<0x20>

startlmhosts: Can't open lmhosts file /etc/samba/lmhosts. Error was No 
such file or diresctory. further it seems I am unable to use the domain 
user flag -Uadministrator because no matter what password I enter:

Received smb_krb5 packet of length 293
Received smb_krb5 packet of length 246

and then again the password prompt.

The long output or the auth fail did not happend last time. It seems 
something went wrong and I am unable to determine where. Probably a 
complete reset might be the only help?
