I think you might be getting a bit confused (it confused me anyway),
you don't create a new Samba AD DC like that, you 'join' another DC to
the domain and then (if you are removing the old DC) demote the old DC.

Though thinking about it, you may be trying to do something else, if so,
you need to explain just what you are trying to do.
