Try it like this:

samba-tool dns zonecreate 10.168.182.in-addr.arpa 

It will prompt you for the password.

If this doesn't work, do you want to try provisioning again, but in a 
different way ?

If so try like this:

samba-tool domain provision --use-rfc2307 --domain=EGLIFAMILY 
--realm=EGLIFAMILY.NAME --adminpass=xxxxxxxxxx

Where 'xxxxxxxxxx' contains characters from three of the following 

     Uppercase letters

     Lowercase letters


     Nonalphanumeric characters: ~!@#$%^&*_-+=`|\(){}[]:;"'<>,.?/

     Any Unicode character that is categorized as an alphabetic 
character but is not uppercase or lowercase.

The password needs to be at least 7 characters long.

For instance (Don't use this): P4ssW*rd
