Care to elaborate on what is missing :-\

I have had a quick look at the page in question and it all seems to be 
there, although there at least a couple of things that need altering:

Under the heading 'Check required DNS entries of the new host' there is 

Before you start samba, you should check, if the new DCs DNS entries are 
set correctly during joining. This doesn't currently work 100% and have 
to be done manually in that case.

I think it would be better put like this:

Before you start samba on the new DC, you should check if the new DCs 
DNS entries have been set correctly during the join. Currently this is 
not guaranteed to happen, in which case you will have to do it manually.

There is also a heading 'FSMO role transfer', it then goes on to talk 
about seizing the roles, now to me 'seizing' is not transferring, also 
it says that there 5 FSMO roles, there are actually 7.
