Yes, but your mail arrived today, probably nobody else on the list
haven't seen it before. Please check you outgoing mail route.
Basically Samba 4.0.x lacks the following features:
1. Domain DFS
2. DAFSR (needed to replicate sysvol between DCs)
3. Trust (it can be trusted it cannot trust)
4. Forest (multidomain) support
5. Group policy modeling wizard support
You should check which of the aforementioned features, if any are
important for your company, and could run a few test migrations.
