Re: [Samba] Q: Samba4 AD DC & small office file sharing

For my current small office configuration, the machine serving

In reading up on creating an updated configuration, I see The Samba
Wiki states the following:

"The Samba AD DC is able to provide file shares, just like all other installation modes. However, the Samba team does not recommend using a DC as a file server"

Does this mean that another machine should be added to serve solely
as the DC or am I misreading it.  If it's yet another machine, is
this truly required for a small setup?

For very small offices, I am installing a docker container running the Samba AD server and on the host I run a Samba server joined to that AD domain. The trick is to add two network interfaces (virtual is ok) to the server, run Docker (or equivalent, runc, rkit..etc.) where the containers runs tied to one host interface and the other is for the host Samba (the domain joined server)
