Hi Valery,

> I have working Samba4 AD domain controller (4.1.22).

you should upgrade to 4.2 or higher samba4 serie due to the recently 
announced badlock bug, since the 4.1 serie is not supported anymore and 
didn't get the patching.

Samba4 AD currently has only a partial support for inter-forest trust, 
so a fortiori it does not support intra-forest trust. So no, you cannot 
yet "create a new domain in an existing forest" with Samba4 AD.
