Samba4. Preferably not the bugged and incomplete packages shipped with
Wheezy. Use the packages provided by sernet, or wheezy-backports.

(Note that Samba4 in wheezy-backports breaks sssd, you'll only be able
to use winbind or pam_ldap. Refer to the recent and still ongoing
elaborate shitstorms on the mailing list to pros/cons of sssd vs. winbindd.)

Should be "samba-tool domain join" in Samba 4.1+. Refer to its help
texts and manpages for details, it's the only documentation currently

Not visibly different from samba3. Set it up in your smb.conf, and
ensure your auth backends (winbind or sssd) are configured properly.
