Error message in clean Samba installation on Slackware 14.1

Hello. I just installed a samba domain using the wiki.
The smbclient -L localhost -U% and the smbclient //localhost/netlogon -UAdministrator -c 'ls' finish ok. But in the configuration of the DNS something is wrong because I try to run samba -i (after I stoped the daemon) and get this error
/usr/sbin/samba_dnsupdate: Traceback (most recent call last):
/usr/sbin/samba_dnsupdate:   File "/usr/sbin/samba_dnsupdate", line 612, in <module>
/usr/sbin/samba_dnsupdate:     get_credentials(lp)
/usr/sbin/samba_dnsupdate:   File "/usr/sbin/samba_dnsupdate", line 125, in get_credentials
/usr/sbin/samba_dnsupdate:     raise e
/usr/sbin/samba_dnsupdate: RuntimeError: kinit for COMPUTER$@DOMAIN.COMAINCOUNTRY.COM failed (Cannot contact any KDC for requested realm)
I'm clearly not a Samba expert, but I think my problem is with the DNS resolution.
The question is that I already have an a Windows Active Directory that we are trying to jubilate that also brings DHCP to the machines (including the Samba machine).
Right now I can't shut the AD because my company will kill me, so I have to configure the new domain with the old running along in the same network.
My smb.conf is this
        bind interfaces only = Yes
        idmap_ldb:use rfc2307 = yes
        server role = active directory domain controller
        wins support = true
        os level = 20
        interfaces = lo, eth0
        dns forwarder =
        workgroup = COMPANY
        netbios name = COMPUTER

        path = /var/lib/samba/sysvol/
        read only = No

        path = /var/lib/samba/sysvol
        read only = No

        path = /home/COMPANY
        read only = No
The IP is the AD/Winms/DHCP machine.

I'm leaving something out that makes the samba domain to not run?

Thanks for the help, regards.

Cannot contact any KDC for requested realm
It's looking for a kerberos realm,

That, apparently, aint it.
You could take the realm reference out, if you're not running kerberos and sighup the Samba config
Or, if you're running Kerberos, you'll have to configure it for a live realm so it can get a ticket. Just a heads up, if you chose to do this make sure you have a good NTP server running on your domain and your client is synching with it prior to asking for a ticket from the kdc or you're going to have a lot of issues.
