Hi,

New to Linux and trying to verify that for supplying a specific OU for Likewise (sudo domainjoin-cli join fqdn.of.your.domain Administrator), the format would be:

sudo domainjoin-cli join -ou abc/def/ghi/jkl/mno example.domain Administrator_acct

Where abc-----mno is going top/bottom of OU schema

Trying to connect Ubuntu 8.10 machine to AD to allow domain users to login, no file server sharing/mounting or anything.

I believe I'm close as I'm asked for my admin password for the domain to authenticate the join and get the following error:

Could not connect to server xyz.example.domain
The username or password was not correct.
Connection failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE
Failed to verify membership in domain: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE!

Error: Unable to join domain [code 0x0008000e]

Domain join operation failed to create the computer account in
Active Directory. Common causes are a bad administrator password, a bad OU name, or an existing computer account without modification permissions.
---------------------------------
So it seems my machine can't talk to our domain controller. I'm certain I'm using the right account and password as I use this acct to join my OS X machines.

Thanks!
