I would upgrade Debian and once you get everything working correctly, 
you can use Louis's repo:  http://apt.van-belle.nl/

That looks like your problem, for some reason 'adc02.example.domain.br' 
cannot be found.

Can you run the attached script on the machine you are trying to join as 
a DC and then post the output in a reply to the mailing list, do not 
attach it, this mailing list strips attachments.
