Domain rights should be sufficient for joining domain.

Only forest wide tasks such as forest prep, domain trust require enterprise admin . Did you check the log in the domain controller?

Most NAS servers are Linux/Unix based Operating systems. You have to create an account for it, because Linux and Unix don't add the account within AD for itself.

We had to do this for all of our 2TB SNAP servers, all our 8TB Buffalo Terastations, and our 54TB NetApps servers.
