Hi, I cannot fully recall all the various problems I had, but it all 
boiled down to the fact that you rename the various debs so that they 
all start with 'sernet-' this would be ok, except that it also removed 
any 'samba' packages that were installed and what was even worse, any 
packages that relied on the removed packages (and there were a lot,). 
So, for at least this reason if no other, I would not recommend the 
sernet packages at all and would advise anybody who wants to use Samba4 
in AD mode, to compile it their self , in the end it works out easier.
