Not really. But README says:


Samba4 supports the server-side of the Active Directory logon environment
used by Windows 2000 and later, so we can do full domain join
and domain logon operations with these clients."

I just added the following docs: "howto.txt", "README", "STATUS".

Note: "STATUS" is an almost empty file. Funny.
