im having it like this

Xen 6.2 servers with. 
DC1	( ntp/dns/ldap/dhcp ) ! dhcp can be in failover mode, but not with bind9_DLZ must be bind9_flate file.
DC2  	( ntp/dns/ldap/dhcp backup ) same install as above incase server 1 is down. data files ares synced. 
	  ntp1/2  dns1/2 and ldap1/2 are set as alias in dns. 

member1 CTDB setup
member2 CTDB setup
proxy1 and 2 with kerberos and ldap auth as fallback.  ( squidclamav icap anti-ads setup and proxy ssl with ssl-bump )
webserver with sso for webmail ( kerberos auth ) lan site / Wan site ldap auth with group control
email server im using zarafa , but on physical hardware, because of my database size 110Gb+ 

software used Debian wheezy on all servers.
sernet samba 4 for DC and Member servers.
Debian Samba 4 from backports for proxy servers ( and you need squid 3.3.x for kerberos and icap to work correctly ) 
webserver debian wheezy no samba ( sso setup ) 
example here : https://community.zarafa.com/pg/blog/read/18332/zarafa-outlook-amp-webaccess-sso-with-samba4
mail server zarafa 7.1.10 added in Samba AD, and transports/aliasses in AD, almost no postfix changed needed.
90% is done in ad, last 10% im working on..  
Push mail. 

In sort almost a MS SBS based on samba4 thanks to these great samba developers AND
all the people of the samba communitie who are helping everyone.  ;-)
