Looks good Marcus.

Arch Linux deserves a mention as often they have the latest version lagging a couple of days behind release.
I use Sernet 's excellent offerings.

samba-tool domain provision --domain=SAMBA4  --adminpass=Mysamba4 \
--dns-backend=SAMBA_INTERNAL --server-role=dc \
--function-level=2008_R2 --use-xattr=yes \
--use-rfc2307 --realm=SAMBA4.LAN

Is usually my provision command

Its great that you have gone into the options more. Maybe log level and DNS IP, Forwarder?

The options to set the dns IP and forwarder address maybe might add to the documentation.

Also out of habit I always run.

samba-tool domain passwordsettings set --complexity=off
samba-tool domain passwordsettings set --min-pwd-length=5
samba-tool user setpassword Administrator

Or mention what password complexity is required.

Also the dns reverse zone
samba-tool dns zonecreate 1.168.192.in-addr.arpa --username=administrator
The server prt record
samba-tool dns add 1.168.192.in-addr.arpa 3 PTR SAMBA1.SAMBA4.LAN --username=administrator
