samba 3 problem - samba PDC can not join to the domain


i've seen so many variations to my problems on this site, but none of them help to solve my problem. if could help in anyway i would be very greatful

right, i've set up samba 3 on my machine as PDC. when i try to do net join it comes up with the following errors.

ads_connect: Transport endpoint is not connected
Unable to join domain SKYNET.

where is the source to this problem? smb.conf or some other settings on my machine?
my log file doesnt show anything very helpful.

previous errors i got, was unable to find server, unable to connect to server.. so im thinking this message is one stage better than the other ones.

attached below is my PDC smb.conf settings.
