I'm planning to make a samba4 domain. My initial plan was to make the DC 
also fileserver. Recently I saw a discussion strongly discouraging the 
use of a DC as fileserver. That was not the first time is saw similar 
So I think I need a DC and a member server. But how does it work 
concerning the "home-shares" of users ? Are those also on the 
member-server ? So that needs to be configured with the user-manager ?

I now have a single samba3 PDC that acts as fileserver, serving about 30 
users. This will move to the new samba4 infrastructure.

Thanks for any pointers.
