winbind- cannot make user authentication with Active Directory

Dear all,

I'm trying to set up Fedora to join as a member active directory domain and
I was able to join sucessuly in to the domain with this command...

samba# net ads join -U Administrator
Administrator password:

but when I run wbinfo commands fail..

samba#wbinfo -a user%user1
plaintext password authentication failed
error code was NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_USER (0xc0000064)
error messsage was: No such user
Could not authenticate user user%user1 with plaintext password
challenge/response password authentication succeeded

Otherwise, if I use this command:
samba#wbinfo -u

I can see the list of my user account in active directory.
also work with this command:

samba#wbinfo -t
checking the trust secret via RPC calls succeeded

I don know whatś wrong with it, can someone help me to solve this problem?

It has been a while since I have set up linux as a domain member file server, but below is the link i used. Although the guide is Gentoo oritated, once you have samba winbind and krb5 installed, the configuration is the same.

below is a guide which i haven't used before, but the content looks the same and its fedora based.
