On Centos 7 I use the above link which also should work on 8. If you want to
build rpms, there is also https://github.com/nkadel?tab=repositories

I am not aware of any pre-build rpms for a DC on Centos 8 but there are some for
Centos 7 but I have never used them.

Red Hat has stated they will not support a Samba DC on RHEL therefore it will
not be supported on Samba.

I would also suggest subscribing to the Samba users mailing list @ samba.org as 
the people there are very good at supporting Samba as a DC.

My one warning to you is unless you wish to inflict large amounts of pain
on yourself do not build Samba using MIT Kerberos. It is unmaintained and
unsupported by the Samba Team or anyone else that I am aware of.
