This may be a stupid question, but have you joined the new domain?
It's easy: First add your computer to the domain using Server Manager
on your PDC (it's under Administrative Tools).  Then use `smbpasswd -j
DOMAIN' on your Samba box -- or if your DC isn't browseable, use
`smbpasswd -j DOMAIN -r DCNAME'.
