That is almost certainly a 2.0 version of Samba.  That version of
Samba has extremely incomplete domain controller support.  It's
definitely not recommneded for use as a production domain controller.

If you want full domain controller support, you will have to use
Samba-TNG.  I'm not sure which alpha version would be the best for you
to try.
