Perfect, it works! ;)

Next question:
mysrv:~#/usr/local/samba/sbin/samba -i -M single

/usr/local/samba/sbin/samba_dnsupdate: usage: nsupdate [-d] [-y 
keyname:secret | -k keyfile] [-v] [filename]
../source4/dsdb/dns/dns_update.c:294: Failed DNS update - 

what's this?

P.s. dns it's alive!

mysrv:~# netstat -nap | grep 53 | grep samb
tcp        0      0* 
LISTEN     2712/samba
