i double check the /etc/hostname file it showed cat-raid but i can not see Cat-rat instead in Active directory.
IF you can't see it in AD, it would seem that the linux box has not successfully joined the AD domain.
What have you done so far? have you followed any guides?
In my experience, simply typing
net ads join -U adminstrator
will not work, but then again I use RHEL so it might be different in Debian.
