Go to the samba wiki on https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Main_Page,
search for "2016", klick on FAQ, scroll down a bit.
There it says:
I Am Running Samba as an AD DC. Which Windows Server Version Can I Join
as an DC to the Forest?
The following Windows server versions are supported as a DC together
with a Samba DC:
Windows Server Version Comments

Good day guys,
I hope all is well on your side.
We are looking at implementing the latest stable version of Samba4 to function as a (secondary) domain controller in an existing Active Directory environment that is currently managed by an existing single Windows Server 2016 server.
Aside from fairly easily-addressed sysvol replication challenges - looking at the official Samba documentation, it seems that nothing higher than a Domain/Forest Function Level of 2008r2 is supported, if Samba4 is to function as Domain Controller in an existing (Windows Server controlled) Active Directory environment?
The information available seems to indicate that the reason for this is due to changes within the Windows Server Kerberos services, that are possibly not available within MIT or Heimdal Kerberos?
Has anyone within the community had experience with this?
I would be most grateful for any guidance and feedback, if possible please.
