Thank you very much for clarification. This means that SMB1 and PDC are 
the problems, not lack of AD.

But if we later need to switch to AD, is there a method like 
classicupgrade to do it? Currently classicupgrade of a standalone server 
Samba 3 creates a standalone server Samba 4, not an AD-DC. It appears to 
be enough to add a few lines to the old smb.conf to make classicupgrade 
do it, but I'm not certain.
