Yeah. I think it is OK, I run Samba DCs on Linux containers. I don't run
the NTP server on the container, It is running on the host, but it is
configured to read the Samba provided socket for signing the time (as
Roland pointed to you to
Make sure that the host NTP server is bound to the same IP (in addition
of any other you want) where you are exposing the Samba DC server
container. For example if my host has IP address of 192.168.100.10 and I
expose the Samba DC container with 192.168.100.11. then I have to make
sure the NTP server is bound to 192.168.100.11 and not only to the host IP.
