That howto is fine as far as it goes, but it is littered with errors,
sudo apt-get install attr build-essential libacl1-dev libattr1-dev \
libblkid-dev libgnutls-dev libreadline-dev python-dev libpam0g-dev \
python-dnspython gdb pkg-config libpopt-dev libldap2-dev \
dnsutils libbsd-dev attr krb5-user docbook-xsl libcups2-dev acl ntp
You only need most of the above if you are going to compile Samba
You also do not need to alter /etc/fstab if you are using ext4.

What do you mean 'join the machine to the domain', you have a DC, it
will have been self-joined during the provision ?

Yes, ignore random howto's found on the internet, read the Samba wiki:
I will give you hint, this is so wrong:
127.0.1.1 dc1.shaver.net dc1
it should be, based on the info in the howto:
192.168.0.200 dc1.shaver.net dc1
Also, you should comment out the line 'dns-dnsmasq' in
