OK, makes sense, but I would remove the ones you don't need.

You must have some idea, by default '544' is the RID for
'Administrators' and, on a Samba AD DC, I would expect a number in the
'3000000' range, so you must have changed it.

Apart from the Sernet packages, there are no readily available AD DC
packages for Centos (Cue somebody saying 'have you tried these ?')

I wouldn't have bothered with the 'prefix', Samba would then have ended
up in '/usr/local/samba'

If you are going to do this, then can I suggest that you delete the
main Samba dir (/usr/local/samba.ad in your case) and then run 'make'

Well, give up reading random webpages, read the Samba wiki instead:

Ah, if you are used to setting up Bind9, then you might have set it up
correctly for Bind9, but wrong for a Samba AD DC. Have you put the zone
files into the bind config ?
Perhaps reading this might help:
