* How did you transfered the roles to to your Samba DC? (through 
windows, samba-tool, ...?)

* What Samba version are you running? "fsmo seize" wasn't working for a 
while: https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9461

* Any errors/messages in the log when you transfer the roles?

Please give some more information, to make it easier to help.
