Samba is configured as:

Now when i try to join my Linux Client to Domain I get the error as
Using short domain name -- TEST
Joined 'LINUX' to realm 'test.com'
kerberos_kinit_password LINUX$@TEST.COM failed:Clock skew too great
net_update_dns_internal:Failed to connect to our DC!
DNS update failed!
any idea what is happening . I have configured Winbind.
First of check whether your linux box clock is exectly as your dc has as if you see the error message again you will see this line:
"kerberos_kinit_password LINUX$@TEST.COM failed:Clock skew too great"
Thus first of figure out this because if I take the example of any windows client machine which also has same clock skew issue I will not able to join my machine with DC for this I have to manually make adjustment of clock of windows client machine with my DC server clock.
Also look into /var/messages it will also shed the light on this issue more clearly.
Hope this will solve your problem.
