Bit confused here, when you provision a Samba AD DC (and you only
provision one DC in a domain), it joins the domain as part of the
provision. You then go on to join other machines to the first DC.

It sounds like you already have an existing domain and now have a new
Samba AD DC.

I think you are going to have to give us more info.
