Lets start by trying to fix your DC ;-)

This will probably involve starting again, you cannot have the same 
realm and netbios name, you cannot use the the dns domain (in uppercase 
or not) for the netbios name.

netbios name = The computers short hostname in uppercase

realm = The DNS domain in uppercase

Workgroup = This is usually the left hand part of the DNS domain (but 
can be anything) in uppercase

I think your provision line should be this:

samba-tool domain provision --use-rfc2307 --realm=SAMBAAD.ENGR.UCSB.EDU 
--domain=SAMBAAD --server-role=dc --adminpass=PASSWORD

If it was very similar and you haven't altered the Samba DC smb.conf, 
then can I suggest you download and run this:


Run it on the DC and post the output in a post (do not attach it, this 
list strips attachments).
