Yes there is a way to maintain your existing Samba4 powered AD Domain.
read this from upgrading-samba4.txt(in the samba.git file)(comes with the

this will help you be able to upgrade your current samba4 domain into the
new version(Alpha 15) and allow you to keep or maintain your existing Samba4
powered AD domain.
