Samba Active Directory Problem

I have installed Samba 3.0.24 on Ubuntu 7.04 along with Winbindd hoping I could join this workstation in our Active Directory but unfortunately I encountered a few problems that I will describe below:

1) When I run net ads test join -U Administrator I get the following error:

[2007/07/26 11:20:59, 0] libads/kerberos.c:ads_kinit_password(208)
  kerberos_kinit_password BANONICAL$@TEST.ORG failed: Client not found in Kerberos database
[2007/07/26 11:20:59, 0] utils/net_ads.c:ads_startup(289)
  ads_connect: Client not found in Kerberos database
Join to domain is not valid

BANONICAL is the name of the client computer where Samba and Winbind are installed, I dont know why it says "Client not found" Im just trying to join the box to our REALM. I have a valid Kerberos ticket and I obtained with kinit Administrator at TEST.ORG 

net ads info works just fine, net ads lookup works fine too, wbinfo -u does not.

Below is a copy of my kerberos config:

    default = SYSLOG:err:auth
    kdc = SYSLOG:info:locall
    admin-server= SYSLOG:info:local2

    ticket_lifetime = 24000
    default_realm = TEST.ORG

        kdc = TEST.ORG
        admin_server = TEST.ORG
        default_domain = TEST.ORG

[domain_realm] = TEST.ORG = TEST.ORG

And this is a copy of my smb.conf file:

workgroup = TEST.ORG
wins server =
dns proxy = no
name resolve order = lmhosts host wins bcast dns
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log size = 1000
security = ads
encrypt passwords = true
obey pam restrictions = yes
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
realm = TEST.ORG
#smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
password server = TEST.ORG
client signing = yes
idmap uid = 500-10000000
idmap gid = 500-10000000
server signing = mandatory
pam password change = yes
winbind separator = +
winbind enum users = no
winbind enum groups = no
winbind use default domain = yes
winbind offline logon = yes
winbind refresh tickets = yes
winbind cache time = 10
template homedir = /home/%U
template shell = /bin/bash
client use spnego = no
domain master = no
server string = Ubuntu Linux

DNS is well configured on the client. I just dont know what could be wrong, help on this matter will be extremely appreciated.

Thanks, John
