Well, if anything, this proves that German Universities are as bad as
English ones LOL

When you didn't get a smb.conf, that is when you should have asked for

I think you should first try to fix the database with 'samba-tool
dbcheck --fix --yes'

If this doesn't work, you may need to demote the two DCs in question,
but you may have to upgrade one of the others to at least 4.4.0, this
will get you the '--remove-other-dead-server' option.
