I never said change the forwarder, I asked what your existing forwarder 
( was, you cannot use the DC's ipaddress for the forwarder, 
it must be a dns server outside the AD dns domain ( for instance)

It looks like Samba didn't fully stop, try stopping it with systemd, 
then check with 'ps ax' and kill any Samba processes still running 
(samba, smbd and winbindd), then start Samba again.

Now, can you please post the output of 'cat /etc/hostname'

Also, just what is '' ?
