ER, we have been here once already, if you are running samba4 as an AD 
DC, you already have a user called 'Guest'. This is not the problem, it 
is something to do with the actual samba code (I think), unless the code 
required has been added since the post I referred you to was written, 
then I do not think that guest access to an AD DC will work.
