You miss read mathias ;-)
>This can be solved very easily booting VMs in the right order and possibly adding latency between VMs launches.
The Guest DC is on fysical server where the member is also.
How are you going to boot the GUEST os before the HOST os, on the same server.
This cant be done..
Or did i miss read the question..

Due to somethings getting connection errors which can cause authentication problems en/or problems with starting other services.

Ah ok, then in your case what i would do.
Im using Xen server, http://www.tecmint.com/xenserver-physical-to-virtual-migration/
or KVM/QEMU example.
setup a test pc import te vm test test, all ok. Export it again.
Reinstall the server for dedicated KVM server and import the tested vm again.
Hope this helps out a but.
Xen server is free and if you have 2 server with same architectures ( amd or intel ) you get live motion for free. (http://xenserver.org/)
Which is very very handy if you have 2 or more servers.
And you have 2 servers.. ..
And then in your case 2 server. Run 3 (or 4) VM's.
2 x DC. ( one per phisical server )
1 x member, one per phisical.
1 x test server.
But it just a suggestion here.

Make it yourself easy, get my debian 8 samba packages, im testing these now for about a week and until now i havent seen any errors.
Found here: http://downloads.van-belle.nl/samba4/
In the samba-4.5.2 folder is an very easy installer, start it, it explains itself.
Im expecting to put these packages in about 1-2 weeks in my apt repo.

I would suggest keep the main file server but set it up as member.
Copy the db files to the new DC and upgrade there.
Keeps you old server intact, and you can test outside your production network.
