How about what it shows here:


Replacing 'SAMDOM.EXAMPLE.COM' with your uppercase dns domain.

NO, positively no, I am not quite sure just what you get if you do what
you proposed, but it isn't a Unix domain member.

You need to create a smb.conf, based around your AD DC, but be aware,
the ID's (the '3000000' numbers) used on a Samba AD DC are only used on
a DC and are never used on a Unix domain member.
