As far as I can see, for ease of use, you have two choices, either use
Ubuntu 12.04 and compile samba4 yourself and use the sssd ppa (which
will get you version 1.11.1) or try Ubuntu 14.04, this comes with Samba
4.0.13 (but hopefully this will be updated to 4.1.3 before the freeze)
& sssd 1.11.3, both of these options work.
