Hello,
I am a Windows administrator who desperatly needs help joining a linux machine to my windows domain.
I know I need to configure samba and use the net join command, but honestly, I do not know if I have samba configured properly.  I'm realy looking for step by step help.

My windows domain is 2003 native, and my linux distro is redhat ES4.  The linux machine is configured and can ping the windows servers and domain name.

I am trying to join the linux machin with the following command:

# net join MEMBER -U Administrator -w SF-MNHC.mnhc.org

I then enter the domain administrator's password, which gives this:

[2006/11/22 16:37:27, 0] libads/kerberos.c:ads_kinit_password(146)
kerberos_kinit_password Administrator@SF-MNHC.MNHC.ORG failed: Cannot find KDC for requested realm
[2006/11/22 16:37:27, 0] utils/net_ads.c:ads_startup(186)
ads_connect: Cannot find KDC for requested realm
Unable to find a suitable server
Unable to find a suitable server


Any help is appreciated
