helo Miguel.
i have a fiew production sites, where samba file servers running their dc
as kvm guests. No problems so far.
Pay attention for dc time sync on startup.
Shutdown (not suspend) guest on host shutdown.
Make shure that appropriate dns server is available for host and guest dc
on startup.

machine, with the additional role of serving as a host to a VM running the

Does anyone here see any problem or disadvantage with such a setup?

Thank you
