Subject: DNS partition creation

Hello Dochelp,

Today I made a couple of replication tests with a very old provision of samba that has been upgraded, the fact that it's an old version means that some attribute are not correct or not 100% coherent as they are now with recent version of samba.

Replication seems to be more or less correct but I noticed that Windows keeps on trying to create 2 partitions for DomainDnsZone and ForestDnsZone although the DNS is not managed within the AD.

What cause a second DC to try to create those partitions ?
