Connecting Linux computer to Windows 2008 R2 Domain


Can someone give me some clue how to get a Linux machine connected to a Windows Domain. I am pulling my hair out trying to get this working.

I have one main Windows 2008 R2 Server which is both Domain Controller and DNS Server. I have two workstations one running Debian 6.0.5, the other openSUSE 12.1. I am trying to get each joined to the Windows domain. Not worried about Samba at the moment, just be happy if I could get these machines joined to the domain.

Despite many wasted hours trying to follow various incomplete articles I still don't seem to be able to get either of these machines connected to the domain.

From Debian:
Host is not configured as a member server.
Invalid configuration. Exiting...
Failed to join domain: This operation is only allowed for the PDC of the domain

From openSUSE:
Failed to join domain: failed to find DC for domain myDomain.

Does that give us any clues?

Just found out that openSUSE does not work with ADS due to a bug when the domain name is xxx.local. I cannot change the domain name so that means openSUSE is out, lets hope Debian can be made to work.
