Samba - need to join ADS


Hi,

I've gone through several tutorials on joing a linux box to a 2003 domain using samba, but I cannot seem to get it right.

When I actually try to joing the domain using:
net ads join "Server\Linux-Unix" -U admin_account@DOMAIN.NAME

I receive the following error:
can only join as domain member or as BDC

Is there a way to manually specify this computer as a member server? Any help is appreciated.

OS: SUSE 10.1


thanks,
