Hmm, I've had quite a few difficulties getting Exchange to work against our
Samba 2.2.0-alpha3 PDC.  (To be exact, a co-worker of mine tied an Exchange
server into our Samba-TNG domain without telling me, and when I tried to
migrate the PDC, everything broke and we have yet to get it working again.)
Does anyone have any first-hand experience with getting Exchange working
successfully against 2.2.0-alpha3?
