Sorry, I thought that you were trying to connect a client to your 
server. I would suggest, if you only want the one AD DC, that you start 
again, this time use the 4.1.4 tarball, dont use nslcd etc, use sssd 
instead and setup the winbind links as per the samba wiki, in fact 
everything you need to know is on the wiki.
