Linux box not able to join win 2000 domain

I've a linux client which I want to get authenticated by win 2000 domain controller.I tried two methods.

1. using kerberos client 2.using samba & winbind

using kerberos client , I ran authconfig on my linux box and selected the option "use kerberos" and gave the address of my server and domain name.Then I tried to get a ticket from the server with the command

"kinit <username>"

It promted for the domain password.The same user was created at the server.The password was accepted.But no other message came on the screen. I tried the command klist to see any tickets are issued. But no tickets were cached. I was not able to log in also. what could've gone wrong?

2. using samba & winbind

I did the following changes in samba

security = ADS
password encrypt = yes
idmap uid = 10000-20000
idmap gid = 10000-20000
template shell = /bin/bash
winbind separator = +

Then I ran authconfig and selected the option "SMB authentication " and gave the details of my server.The I tried to join the domain with the command

net join -w -I <server IP> -U administrator

which prompted for the password

But the message was "Unable to join the Domain"

and there was a message like "INVALID_NT_COMPUTER_NAME "

Another error was

"kerberos kinit password administrator@MYDOMAIN.COM failed. KDC has no support for encryption type"

should I need to create the machine account in windows or is it created on the fly.

If you have any solution, please help me.
