The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 371
ads_startup() does not allow you to use a specified realm
Last modified: 2005-08-24 10:20:33 UTC
If you define a realm in smb.conf but not a workgroup, then net ads join
fails to find a DC (in most cases). reported by Axel Suppantschitsch

fixed by always using lp_realm() from smb.conf.
originally reported against one of the 3.0.0rc[1-4] releases.
Cleaning up non-production versions.
sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
