Here's the smb.conf for one of the DCs (I'm working with Mike on this):
        netbios name = DC3
        realm = EXAMPLE.COM
        workgroup = EXAMPLE
        server role = active directory domain controller
        allow dns updates = nonsecure
        dns forwarder =
        idmap_ldb:use rfc2307 = Yes
        printcap name = /dev/null
        load printers = no
        printing = bsd
        ntp signd socket directory = /var/run/samba/ntp_signd
        #acl:search = no
        ldap server require strong auth = no
        winbind sealed pipes = false
        client signing = off
        require strong key = false
        client ldap sasl wrapping = plain
        log level = 1 auth_audit:10

        path = /var/lib/samba/sysvol/example.com/scripts
        read only = No

        path = /var/lib/samba/sysvol
        read only = No
