Well, 'WERR' is short for 'Windows Error' (I think) and 
'DNS_ERROR_DS_UNAVAILABLE' is supposed to mean that the Directory 
Service is unavailable. Is something getting in the way (Apparmor, 
Selinux, a firewall etc). Is Samba actually running ? Are you using 
Bind9, if so, is it running and set up correctly ?
