Description samba 2020-05-11 08:16:24 UTC
Troubleshouting as described exactly in your Wiki https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Troubleshooting_Samba_Domain_Members:

When joining a host to an Active Directory (AD), the net fails to update the DNS: 
# net ads join -U administrator
Enter administrator's password:
Using short domain name -- SAMDOM
Joined 'M1' to dns domain 'samdom.example.com'
DNS Update for m1.samdom.example.com failed: ERROR_DNS_UPDATE_FAILED
Note, that the join was successful and only the DNS updated failed. 

Bug: the domain "m1.samdom.example.com" was defined as an "alias" in the DNS server.

If domain is defined as "host" in the DNS server, command executed as exspected.
