Please define 'installation', do you mean that you have installed the
required Samba packages and have not provisioned or something else ?

Is your Windows domain actually called 'testdomain.tld' ?
I have never tried to join a Samba DC to a Windows 2012 DC (or
visa-versa), but there is a wikipage that says you need a 2008 DC in
the mix, see here:


Yes, I know it is about joining in the opposite direction to what you
are trying, but replication is a two way thing, so I suspect that what
will not work in one direction, will not work in the other direction
either (unless someone knows different)
