So you are going to rely on red hat coming up with a working samba DC 
package, good luck with that and I hope you are prepared to be patient. 
Samba 4 was released nearly 2 years ago and red hat still hasn't got a 
working package, why ? because they insist it must work with mit instead 
of heimdal, it probably would have been quicker for red hat to drop mit.
