Okay, let's recap:

• Old hardware with low RAM and no VT-x/AMD-V support
  (It's an x86 box with some Linux, right?)
• You have an existing domain
• And you want to add an DC on a second site to it

Anything else you should have told us the first mail so nobody's time is
wasted with suggestions that you already know beforehand to not work?
E.g., already having evaluated winbind offline logon to attempt and
solve this?
