Hmm, that's still not answering the question, lets try it another way, 
did you run:

samba-tool domain provision <other options>

I understood that you had either written or altered smb.conf, that bit 
was fairly obvious.

What I am trying to get across is this:

You cannot provision samba4 as an AD member server, this is something 
the devs will have to create when they get the time, other things have 
greater priority.

You can use samba4 as a domain member by creating the relevant smb.conf 
and then joining the machine to the domain.

The 'server services' line will only affect a samba4 machine that was 
'provisioned', it will have no affect on a member server joined to the 
domain. This is because only a provisioned machine runs the samba daemon 
and the 'server services' line only affects this daemon.

I do not think that what you are trying to do will work, in the format 
you are trying.

Lastly, can you please keep all posts on the list.
