Hi everyone. Hi Andrew.

That is an interesting question.

Many systems cannot be rebooted on a regular basis nor do many companies 
have the resources for a test system to be in operation.

We have openSUSE 12.1. Does either that or Ubuntu LTS, which is our 
testbed, have the required packages? An easy yes or no question.

Would it be possible for the Samba4 developers to publish a list of 
distros which work out of the box? Following the wiki instructions?

To get that ball rolling, I can say that neither openSUSE 12.1 nor 
Ubuntu 12.04 do so out of the box by following the wiki instructions.

Yes, of course you can do it, but the typical windoze admin just laughs 
at you in your struggle. Most of them are only capable of pointing and 
clicking at dsa.msc all day! DNS and acl's are a big issue.

If we can get the internal dns server going, it would take a lot of the 
smile from their faces.
