Good Day All

I have been trying to upgrade from samba 3 to samba 4.2.1 on Ubuntu 14.4
using the sernet-samba  package.

the upgrade seems to work fine and the samba4 comes up correctlly,

I have also run the following script to get rid of bug


I am able to resolve some basic dns entry using the host command, and
that's good,  however any kinit  does not work and return

kinit mariopio at CCDC.LAN
kinit: Cannot contact any KDC for realm 'CCDC.LAN' while getting initial

my smb.conf file is the following

# Global parameters
        workgroup = CCDC
        realm = ccdc.lan
        netbios name = CCDC-SAMBA4
        server role = active directory domain controller
        idmap_ldb:use rfc2307 = yes
        dns forwarder =
        server services = dns winbind
        #server services = winbind

        path = /var/lib/samba/sysvol/ccdc.lan/scripts
        read only = No

        path = /var/lib/samba/sysvol
        read only = No

do you have any suggestion?
