 Hi Rowland,
ok. I wouldn't mind doung the new domain route. BUT:

1.) as I have 3 kids waiting here - I do not have time2.) as I said - I just have one Laptop where the AD is now running and if not really really necessary, I do not want to waste money and time just for searching, buying and replacing what I have
That said - I would prefer I fast solution with fixing what went wrong and afterwards with time make the changes to a new system.Otherwise I also can make the change - if all what is now in the AD could be exported. So that what now is configured is not lost (because of point 1. - I do not have plenty of time to wait until all works again)

I think one question could be clearified before making all the effort would be - Is the DNS Server accidentially running (or not running now) and all the information is in another site (the AD), if so - how is it to switch back to that information so that the DC is asking itself and answering correct.
Thanks - and good night for today...Matthias

To be honest, I probably could talk you through fixing your setup, but
it will probably be easier, if possible, to setup a new domain.

If you do decide to go down the new domain route, can I make a few
suggestions ?
Use  the latest Debian and use Samba from bookworm-backports, which
will get you Samba 4.18.6. This isn't the very latest version, but it
is very close.
Use the internal dns server when you provision.
