Depends on what you mean by 'install Samba AD'.

If you mean running Samba as a Unix domain member, then it works out of 
the box.

If you mean running Samba as an AD DC, that's where it gets a bit 
difficult. The standard OS packages cannot be provisioned as a DC, there 
just isn't the code.
You would need to find a repo that holds Samba packages that can be 
provisioned, Sernet or Tranquil IT for instance, or you will have to 
build Samba yourself.
