You can recommend whatever you like, the reality is that there's no spare
hardware is coming my way alongside your recommendations.
And I've been bitten by virtualization one time too many already to feel
reluctant to implement it in production.
Just check the last thread I started.

I can't see, how it can make a difference, if I'm setting winbind on DC or a
member server. The information is coming from same place - from AD.
What makes it behave differently, if set on different server?
