Thx for the answer Rowland. I thought me saying Samba AD was just enough but spot on, I am trying to install Samba AD DC. Let me ask that way then is there any easy solution on the horizon? Couse I really don't think that I can build Samba myself.

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.
