It is going to be even messier than what you think ;-)
I take it ClearOS didn't get the message, there is NEVER going to be
a Samba AD DC on RHEL, so, unless ClearOS comes up with their own Samba
packages, they (like Centos) will never be able to provision a DC using
distro packages.

Your distro ;-)
