Failed to join domain

I am running the following command under RedHat Linux and I get the following error upon a net ads command upon joining to an AD environment.

Client not found in Kerberos Database
Failed to Join Domain: Improperly formed account named. How can I fix this error?

I have configured by krb5.conf, the etc/nsswitch.conf but I still getting the error.

Help,
Jeff

You need to use samba 3.x for Active Directory support  and make sure that you are using LDAP/Kerberos authentication on both sides, please read:
