Hello Kamen,

I am receiving the same error as Ivan.  I will run the specific test you
noted above for Ivan.  I had started a new thread with subject "Samba4 -
Error when vampiring from existing 2003 domain controller - Failed to
attach 1st pass schema from DRS".  I am running whatever the Git was
from Monday, August 2.

I will get latest again tomorrow morning and let you know what revision
I am on as well as whether it works or not.

Ivan - I had to go into my AD controller and remove the orphan domain
controller using the ntdsutil package.  There are some records in AD,
but not a complete domain controller.  It won't clean itself up nicely
without that.  If you need specific instructions, I found a good guide
here -
