To get to know Smaba4 you can setup a workstation Windows or Linux, install
Oracle's VirtualBox and setup your first Samba4 ADDC.....
Before every change in configuration take a snapshot and return to this
snapshot when something went wrong.

You can also setup a virtual machine as Windows client and manage Samba4
from that client.
