[Samba] Managing a Samba4 AD DC using a Win7 workstation

I just installed Samba4 using the following doc :


Everything works Ok. All tests are Ok.

Now, I would like to manage it from a remote Windows7 Virtualbox

For that, I followed the following doc :


I installed the RSAT component but when trying to connect the Server
Manager to my Samba4 AD DC, I get an error message saying the client
could not connect to the server.

I did some tcpdumps and what strikes me is that the Win7 tries to
connect to the Samba4 DC on port 5985. But I don't have any samba
processes listening on tcp port 5985.

What can be the root cause of this issue ?

Thanks for your help.
