I have copied my reply to samba-technical.  The Samba4 HOWTO still says:
"While Samba4 is still in alpha release we would encourage you to
report both your successes and failures to the samba-technical mailing
list on http://lists.samba.org"

The HOWTO should work (except for the rsync part at the moment), but I
suggest you download the recently released alpha 13 tarball instead of
using GIT.

That's pretty old.  Try the alpha13 tarball.

You will need a working DNS server.

Yes, you need a DNS server.  The HOWTO explains basically how to configure it.
