Hi Andrew,

Sorry for sending this again, my last email bounced because I sent it from the
wrong address.

Thanks for your quick reply.
Do you have any idea yet of how long it might be until samba4 has the capability
to create domain trusts between two samba4 servers? Or is it too early days yet?

Thanks for your help,
