I've been doing some research and testing into implementing SAMBA 4 as a
AD/DC role for offering "AD as a service" to various small companies, I've
been testing SAMBA out in various different configurations and wondering if
SAMBA in AD/DC role if it's possible to segment in such a way

some requirements:
 - Windows 10 support, e.g SMB3
 - AD tree segmentation so that one customer doesn't see a another customer
AD tree, (users, computer, shares, etc..)
 - Single or multi domain (however I understand multi trust domains isn't
supported yet)

some ideas:
- separate SAMBA instance for each customer,
- use docker to host each SAMBA instance
- single SAMBA instance running some splittree/forest

Anyone attempt something before?

thanks in advance
