Yes, but what were your answers to the questions you were asked ?

Having read your reply to Louis and his answers, I am with him, you will 
probably be better of provisioning again, but this time don't bother 
with the interactive provision, set the required settings in the 
provision command, run 'samba-tool domain provision --help' for what you 
can set.
