Would it be worth trying to shoehorn this into the main Samba article? I personally like that it is separate. I might, however, be biased. :-) Anyway, with trying to keep things clean with little fragmentation, I think the existing Samba server section could be made one layer deeper and label it "Standalone server" and drop this one in almost verbatim (scrub the introductory text and increase the '=' surrounding headings by one) in its own server subsection.

:I agree with you, AD controller is a specific usecase. Most users will only use the fileserver/client aspects. For example, if this article gets troubleshooting items, they would mix with the main [[Samba#Troubleshooting]] section, which would be not ideal. Instead one could move it to a subpage of the Samba article ([[Samba/Active domain controller]]). This would also enable to drop the intro and reference the article with a one sentence section in [[Samba]]. --[[User:Indigo|Indigo]] ([[User talk:Indigo|talk]]) 12:37, 13 April 2016 (UTC)

:::Thanks for feedback. I've put a move template now with [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Samba_4_Active_Directory_domain_controller&type=revision&diff=433828&oldid=433811]. This is the first step to propose a move. Now let's wait a bit first, if anyone has objections. A week max should be enough for this article, because it is not a major move out of the current context and you are the author basically. I don't think there will be objections in this case, but we want this waiting period first - you never know.

Missing step

Under interactive provision explanations, the following step is missing.
DNS forwarder IP address (write 'none' to disable forwarding) [172.16.212.2]:
