I'm really sorry to tell you, but CentOS is unable to serve something
like AD. The only thing that CentOS can do is serve a NT 4.0 style
domain with Samba, but that lacks many of the AD-Features.
For example you won't get kerberos or a real directory service. There is
actually a method to run group policies with samba, but this requires a
software that must be licensed for every windows pc.
If you're sure that you only need the NT4-features you can migrate,
however I don't think you can use CentOS/samba as a drop-in replacement,
because you'd have to rejoin the domain so the clients realize it isn't
