 Thank Rowland for write me back.

 In case I want to created others GPOs, other than the ones that exist in the old Domain Controller, if I want to created new ones, what should I do?

 I guess that if I change the permissions to   /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol/ to root (owner) - BUILTIN\Administrators (group) I be able to create new GPOs. 

 How to change the permissions? 

(chown root:BUILIN\Administrators /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol/ is not well)
