> I'm going to be setting up an Active Directory system soon(ish) in a mixed environment.  I've got a lot of non-Windows workstations and servers running FreeBSD and MacOS.  So I was wondering what I needed to do to have internal DNS resolution and DHCP leases running from a FreeBSD virtual server while running Active Directory from another virtual server.

What OS do you plan to run you AD on?

I have a virtual server running samba 4 (for the authentication part
of AD only) and another running DNS+DHCP.

I had to add a bunch of stuff to my DNS to glue the whole thing, I
more or less copied it from the local DNS server that Samba insisted
on installing.
