What is the highest AD Forest functional level I can use and still have SAMBA 4 function as a domain controller. Can SAMBA 4 act as a domain controller in a Server 2012 functional level forest? Does functional level matter with SAMBA?

The Active Directory functional level cannot exceed (to be "supported") 2008 R2. It appears there are still issues with SAMBA4 + 2012 schema.
