I just did the same questions months ago with no answer!?
Now I am curious to here if this is working for now. In the past ctdb only
worked for me only for file serving.
With samba4 you can create the same on the fly.

Betreff: [Samba] CTDB and PDC Role

Hi, I'm looking to install a new 2-node Samba3 cluster. The cluster
will be responsible for Domain Management and file/printer serving.
How does the PDC/BDC roles work with CTDB enabled?, does the cluster
appear as just one machine (and PDC)?.

In the past I've configured PDC/BDC pairs with OpenLDAP as backend and
DRBD for active/passive file serving. Now it sounds nice to have
active/active nodes. The best configuration example of a CTDB cluster
I've seen uses an external AD DC for authentication, that's why I
doubt about this feature mixed with CTDB.
