Sorry for that. I'm not lucky. I try to do things right and I do them wrong.
I think the "smb.conf" below is complete and correct this time.
I've never had a "netlogon" share.

   workgroup = MY_DOMAIN
   server string = %h Samba server
   log level = 1
   log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
   max log size = 1000
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY
   logon path =
   logon home =
   domain logons = yes
   os level = 254
   preferred master = yes
   domain master = yes
   local master = yes
   remote browse sync = yes
   passdb backend = smbpasswd

   comment = my_partage
   path = /my_partage
   force group = domadm
   read only = no
   create mask = 0664
   directory mask = 0775
   guest ok = yes

When it works, it pretty much works like a domain... :)
I'm ready now to set up a new "Samba4 domain" the way you suggest.
Will I be able to keep my DHCPD and BIND9 configurations?
Can you help me?

Thank you and best regards.
