I did not read everything but, in short, here we have Samba AD DC (only) on
VM, clients on VM and on physical machines.

> If I’m understanding you correctly, you want to move your Samba AD/DC to a
> virtual machine, and you also have a virtual machine with Windows 7 on it,
> and these will both be on the same virtual host.
> If this is correct, then yes, you can definitely do it. Each virtual
> machine will have a network adapter and it will, depending upon how you
> have it configured, get (or have) its own IP address. For example, I used
> my Macbook Pro as a virtual machine host and had another Mac OS VM, two
> CentOS VMs, and a Windows 10 VM, all communicating and bridged to my
> machine’s adapter, therefore all accessing the rest of my LAN.
> If my understanding is correct, you can even setup an additional host-only
> network and second ethernet adapters in each VM so that network traffic
> only goes between those two VMs, but that’s not really needed since you
> still need to get to the Windows 7 VM from outside the host.
> If I misunderstood and you’d like to run the Samba VM on a Windows 7 host,
> AND have users of that host authenticate against the AD, that would be a
> small problem unless you have the VM autostart and you give it enough time
> to boot up completely before your users attempt to authenticate.
> There are many options, and you can definitely accomplish what you want.
