Just for clarification: This machine _is_ the AD DC!

I think to remember that it is not required for file share users to have 
login permission to the file server. Am I wrong?

If not, does it mean that the coarse steps to set up a file server are:

1) install samba and join domain
2) install winbind and make sure domain users can log in
3) define a share and publish it in smb.conf
