[Samba] Samba 4 DNS name Planing

Pretty sure use of .local is deprecated in recent versions of Windows Server - ISTR it's something to do with some Windows client devices requiring a certificate signed by a recognised CA, and of course none of them will sign a certificate ending in .local.
Personally, I’d set up a subdomain of a registered domain - eg. ad.mydomain.com - and that’d be the AD domain. But I haven’t checked to see if that represents recommended practise so take it with all the salt you think it needs.
