Please don't do that, it isn't a good idea, use an 'include', that way 
if something changes, it will still work.

Yes and that didn't end successfully :-\

What did the Windows DC start out as ? 2008R2 or was it an earlier version ?

What was the full command you used to join the Samba DC to the Windows 
domain ?

Did you get any errors during the successful join ?

Can you go here: 

Download the script and run it on your Samba DC.

sanitise the outpost and post it to this list.
