Hi, what were you running before, a workgroup or a domain?
As for the wins server, you use the nameserver you created when you 
provisioned samba4 instead.

Have you read the webpage I pointed you at? You need to join the Samba 3 
server to the samba4 domain as a member server.

A samba 4 server is just the same as a windows active directory server 
(or rather it will be) and you should read up on this (Google is your 
friend) ;-)
