Yes, I am setting up a new Samba-based AD DC.
The goal is to eventually transfer the FSMO roles to the Pi and remove my current Windows 
2008 servers.

Should I install BIND9 and DHCP first, then install Samba and do the join?

Is Louis's 'how-to' for Ubuntu still the best guide, even for Raspbian?
(The Samba wiki seems out of date.)
I was hoping there was somethiing more specific to Raspbian.

Thanks, Rick
