Naa.. Not needed to reinstall. 

His setup is better then most i see here. 
He could do. 

apt-get remove --autoremove --purge samba winbind

And reinstall samba, that should be sufficient. 
But stopping samba-ad-dc and removing the files for the /var/{lib,cache}/samba  is suffient. 

I do that on every test server.
