Error in domain join verification (credential setup failed): NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED
Unable to join domain CS.
When i change the version of samba on the server side to 3.2.8(instead of 3.3.3) then i can successfully join the domain.
Ok, can you provide a log level 10 of the failing "net rpc join" ?
A yum update brought me from 3.0.28-0.el5 to 3.0.33-3.7.el5 and it started working.
It still might be a good idea to find out what exactly was wrong
Ok, this was the broken credential chain. Fixed in current 3.3 releases.
Closing as fixed.
