Cisco 5.x VPN client.  ASA 5505 8.2.2  Server 2003 STD SP2

Can touch any resource on the remote side I choose, except joining the domain.

I can try to join and mis-spell the domain name and get an expected answer which tells me I'm on the right track.

Enter the domain creds and "the domain could not be contacted"

Can hit the DC via ping, SMB, RDP, map drives/printers, etc.  DNS surely points to the DC.

Logged into the local machine with a faux 'admin' acct, toggled the firewall, this n that.

Even went so far to pre-create the computer acct in ADUC just for googles.

What am I missing?  I can touch EVERY resource on the other side via my client VPN except joining the fkin DOMAIN.

How can I join a Win7pro machine to a 2003 domain via Cisco 5.x client VPN?

Short Story:
Cisco ASA 5505 8.2.2
No fancy NATS or blocks on the ASA
Can touch anything I want via the VPN
2003 SP2 Standard
Win 7 Pro

Why can't I join that domain??
