Slackware(64-14.1), so I am used to re-building things to my liking :)


P.S. If the client still wants _AD_ DC - can i just build fileserver  
using the same samba4 build I have for DC (I re-built it after  
installation of heimdal 1.5.2), join it to the domain and have the  
shares on FS browsable? Any howtos/hints for such configuration? For  
the purpose of finding the best solution I already have virtual  
network of 4 virtual machines (ADDC + 3 types of clients), virtual  
file server will be fifth.
