I've been thinking about this for 2 years. I held back waiting for samba 4
DC stability. It was a mistake to wait this long. It seems that AD DC
functionality in samba for is really good -- and stable.

I was thinking of using Intel NUC devices for this. I am running a school
with 3 campuses and about 800 students and 200 facutly of a zotac box
running samba 4.1.x. I would love to collaborate with anyone on the best
stack to build this with. I'd also like to better understand all the python
api's needed to do things like user management, ou creation, etc. ..
samba-tool is not my favorite utility..
