[Samba] Setup a Samba AD DC as an additional DC

Last try before hopefully someone replies with guidance :-)

I'm not insistent in using the HOUDCU1801 computer name if that's the problem.  It seems like a DNS problem, but I'm a bit in the dark about what Samba doesn't like about the AD DNS.

I deleted the A record in DNS and ran the join domain again and it throws a different error:

Committing SAM database

Adding DNS A record HOUDCU1801.daram.com for IPv4 IP:
