Good morning.

At this moment we run a samba4 domain with five linux DC under 4.1.7 
version. However, due to some poor designed apps our LDAP is suffering a 
lot of querys that raises CPU at 100% for minutes. Performance is poor 
and we think that a native Windows native DC would not suffer this 
problem due to a better index management and/or optimization at LDAP 

So, the question is, is it possible having a Win2K8 as a DC controller 
in a samba4 environment? Is safe? Has anybody experienced with this
