Hello all,

Recently attempted to add another Windows 2008R2 server to our existing DSFW domain and am receiving the following error:

The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted

Looking at the windows debug log the following sticks out:

NetpDoDomainJoin: status: 0x54b

Everything else appears normal with the domain, authentication etc. I've run every check from Novell TID 7001884 (Verify a Domain) and all return proper information. I've done SRV record checks using the check-dns.pl "Cool Tool" it says all of the SRV records are fine.

When attempting to join the domain the /var/opt/novell/xad/log/kdc.log presents one weird result:

krb5kdc[1054](info): no valid preauth type found: Unknown code 0

That error immediately appears upon inputting credentials in the Windows server and pressing enter

If I unzip one of the previous logs where a server was joined I do not see that 'unknown code 0' error, rather I see the normal message logs.

The server is:

SLES
VERSION = 11
CO-BRANDS = SLE openSUSE
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (x86_64)
VERSION = 11
PATCHLEVEL = 1

patches as of that service pack are in place, I havn't yet updated to OES11 SP2 that's on the agenda.

Any ideas, I've been beating my head against the wall most of last night / this fine weekend AM.

Thanks,
