we should also add at least the following. 

At the beginning before installing samba and depending on how a server is installed ( with or without dhcp ) 
the /etc/hosts file needs to be checked. 
if you see :  hostname.domain.tld hostname 
then this needs to be changed to 
the_real_ip    hostname.domain.tld hostname  

you should not have AND and there real_ip set to hostname. 

this part : Check DNS entries  
Host DC2.samdom.example.com. not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)  
does not resolv the basic setup (/etc/hosts or /etc/resolv.conf ) was not 100% correct. 
99.9% times it is the /etc/hosts which is wrong. 
the fix is ok, but we can mention this at the beginning to set the /etc/hosts correct.

Others your opinion about this?
