Stop right there remove the samba packages and install the samba3x
packages. Then take a look at my previous post made yesterday.

You are persisting on using a woefully out of date version of Samba when
your distribution comes with a much more recent prepackaged version. Why
anyone would want to use the plain samba packages in RHEL/CentOS when
trying to intergrate to the AD is utterly beyond me.
