OK, but netbios doesn't really work on a DC, also what was the 'big
issue' that meant you had to use a DC ?

You might think [homes] is working correctly and it might appear to be
working, but it will give problems, why do think we put this:

 The [homes] feature is not supported running on a Samba Active
 Directory (AD) domain controller (DC).

on the 'Users Home Folder' wiki page ?

You will need a CNAME in dns on the DC, but all this seems a bit of an
overkill for something that is going to be demoted.
I think you need to explain what you are migrating from and what you
finally hope to end up with.
