I take it you missed this warning near the top of that page:

ID mapping back ends are not supported in the |smb.conf| file on a Samba 
Active Directory (AD) domain controller (DC).

You need to remove ALL these lines, they DO NOT work on a DC:

# Global parameters from
#       security = ADS
# Default ID mapping configuration for local BUILTIN accounts
# and groups on a domain member. The default (*) domain:
# - must not overlap with any domain ID mapping configuration!
# - must use a read-write-enabled back end, such as tdb.
         idmap config * : backend = tdb
         idmap config * : range = 3000-7999
# - You must set a DOMAIN backend configuration
# idmap config for the SAMDOM domain
         idmap config LAN:backend = ad
         idmap config LAN:schema_mode = rfc2307
         idmap config LAN:range = 10000-999999
         idmap config LAN:unix_nss_info = yes
         vfs objects = acl_xattr
         map acl inherit = yes
         store dos attributes = yes

It sounds like you need to read this:
