DC02 is not a DC.  Initially I was going to make it a DC but I changed my

cat /etc/samba/smb.conf
cat /etc/samba/smb.conf
security = ADS
workgroup = HOME

log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
log level = 1
idmap config * : backend = autorid
idmap config * : range = 10000-9999999
idmap config * : rangesize = 200000

username map = /etc/samba/user.map

template shell = /bin/bash
template homedir = /home/%U

There is a log being created /var/log/samba/%m.log:

[2022/09/09 15:14:39.261894,  0]

  At this time the 'samba' binary should only be used for either:
  'server role = active directory domain controller' or to access the ntvfs
file server with 'server services = +smb' or the rpc proxy with 'dcerpc
endpoint servers = remote'
  You should start smbd/nmbd/winbindd instead for domain member and
standalone file server tasks

  exit_daemon: daemon failed to start: Samba detected misconfigured 'server
role' and exited. Check logs for details, error code 22

I haven't tried to join because DNS doesn't seem to be working and
verifying dns is towards the beginning of the wiki.

nslookup DC01.home.server-name.lan
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

In all things, Be Intentional.
