Could not fetch our SID – did we join ?

If you get this message, your linux server is not member of an Active Directory realm.
To join properly the realm :

[root@localhost:~]# net ads leave -U

Join your server using an Administrator account in the right OU using the createcomputer option

[root@localhost:~]# net ads join -U createcomputer=DOMAIN/Servers/Non-Windows

Once joined, check the trust secret for your DOMAIN :

[root@localhost:~]# wbinfo -t
checking the trust secret for domain DOMAIN via RPC calls succeeded
