No, you have found a further problem ;-)

The correct command to create a user in Samba AD is 'samba-tool user
create'. You do not use 'smbpasswd' to create an AD user.

Can we check a few things:

You have installed Samba packages capable of being an AD DC (I say
capable because red-hat distros, except the latest Fedora, cannot be
AD DC's)

You have provisioned it correctly

You have set up the DC OS correctly

You have joined the windows machine to the domain

If all the above is correct, it should work, if it doesn't, check if
Selinux, Apparmor or a firewall is getting in the way.

If after all of the above is checked and it still doesn't work, then
we are going to have to walk through setting a Samba DC, hopefully
this should show what is wrong ;-)
