Subject: When creating a subdomain, who fills in hasPartialReplicaNCs?

I've got Samba to the point where Samba can be a subdomain to a windows AD domain, something we have been working on for a number of years.

As context, we did some work on this at a number of previous plugfest events, and this work has been mostly to re-animate this effort, and to make it useful to end users, by having it also work for NTLM authentication.  

I've got to the point where Samba and windows both seem to think they are in a trusted domain situation, and Samba can authenticate with an account from the Windows parent domain using both NTLM and Kerberos.

Next, I need to replicate the Samba domain
(sub.ad.ruth.wgtn.cat-it.co.nz) to the AD domain (ad.ruth.wgtn.cat-it.co.nz), and vice-verca, because the both DCs should be a GC.  How do I instigate that?  

"MS-ATDS DC and Partial Replica NCs Replicas" describes the end state, and it seems Windows (perhaps after a time) replicates in the Samba state, but what causes the initial replication and the update of hasPartialReplicaNCs and msDS-HasInstantiatedNCs?

I note that this was partially answered in 112062456011515 here:

However, I'm still a little unclear on what I should be doing to trigger this on the Samba side of things.
