Most of what I've found involves installing from source, which I'm not opposed to for a pilot install but for production I would rather use the distro packages or sernet. 

Or is this nuts/shortighted/ignorant? 

At any rate, I'm looking for a good guide for getting it set up as an AD controller, and then migrating my existing samba3+openLDAP+autofs setup to the new platform. Having too many issues trying to get win7/8 clients to play nice with samba3. 

Samba by example is what I used for my existing environment, great, phenomenal guide, but there does not seem to be anything analogous for Samba4. 

Thanks very very much,
