* Remove the smb.conf. Otherwise, you have to fix the 'interfaces'
option values manually.

* Remove all databases (/usr/local/samba/var/ and
/usr/local/samba/private/). Not all files will be overwritten, so it's
better to remove all, instead to mixup something.

*  re-run the command.

Warning: You will loose you entire domain! Everything has to be
re-created (users, groups, machines need to be rejoined, etc.).
