OK, you obviously didn't understand that, how about this:

NOTE: Only do this if you are running a version of Samba before 4.2.0
or if you are using a later version, that by default uses winbindd, and
you have manually changed it to use the built-in winbind by adding
'server services = +winbind -winbindd' to the DCs smb.conf
