Understanding that a samba 4.x ADDC should be run on a an os separate 
than a samba 4. file server, I was thinking of virtualizing both. Is it 
common to have a single physcial server with two VM's running samba?

If some is there a recommendation on how much hardware to start with and 
how much virtual hardware to give each VM. I'm wondering about virtual 
nics and if there may be a problems have multiple vm's accessing the 
network through a single physcial nic.

This is an ADDC and file server for a small office so numbers of users 
will be below 50. Any recommendations?
