Ok. So indeed, a minimum install is not what I need after all.

This I do not understand.

This I do not understand either.
What's the use of a domain if there are no shares on the machines both Linux
an Windows?
I mean, it is a Samba(4) domain, not a pure "Windows" domain.
Maybe I'm missing a point but this is what actually a domain controller is
useful for in my company: having shares on the machines accessing them
securely and freely.

Confusing indeed.
