[Samba] Fwd: Migrating server

I've setup a new Samba 4 box (sam4dc) on Ubuntu 14.04 with Samba 4.3.11. I
have the following
Just to clarify, sam3DC is the current DC with samba 3.6.3
workgroup = STEST
netbios name = Sam4DC
password server = Sam3DC (This is the current DC)
security = user
nameserver = 192.168.10.1 (IP of Sam3DC)
I can ping the sam3dc from the sam4dc box using fqdn.
When I try to join sam4dc into stest domain I get:
net rpc join -U dadmin
cannot join as standalone machine
If I add the server role = member server , I get the same error message.
If I add the security = domain , it asks me DO you really want to join an
Active Directory Domain. If I put the password in, I get smb_signing_good:
BAD SIG : seq 1
Do I copy the smb.conf file from sam3dc and change the bit about domain
master = no ? Or do I have join the machine to the domain as DC using
server role = DC in smb.conf?
