We are in fully agreement in that "AD isn't ldap, it contains its own
version of ldap", and by implication it has quite a few more things
than "Just LDAP".
I have implemented, debugged, maintained and supported LDAP
authentication plugins for web-based software (most notably Moodle),
for some years. Developed and tested against OpenLDAP, then debugged
it a bit against actual AD servers because the Samba DC didn't exist.
Now it exists! Woohoo!
"What's the simplest Samba DC I could reasonably use? to dev/test
against? All I want is to throw a dozen users and three groups in
there". For example, I would love a simple enough setup that I can run
in a throwaway VM/container for unit+e2e tests in integration.
