Hi All,

Today i have configured 2 servers  Samba("4.0.0alpha12-GIT-580f955") 
first i tried to configure the replication and it didn't work with the 
normal configure script, later on i decided to do a configure.developer 
and then configured the Directory replication, as off now no errors, and 
everything is going fine except the Group policies do not replicatea and 
the shares i have created in smb.conf.

both the above mentioned changes i have made after the domains are 
vampired successfully

Means i have configured samba domain, vmapired them, checked the 
replication and then i went and created the new GPO on a new OU, i can 
see lots of activity going in the logs, once i started making changes to 
the GPO or created, but in the end the directory "Policies" is not 
replicated to the 2nd domain.

Also if i click on the check box of Global Catalog of the 2nd DC, from 
the "Active Directory Sites and Services" would it become GC, because by 
default its not check for the 2nd DC

Also if someone can through a light on DNS configuration for the 
additional domain controller. so that the winxp machines on then network 
can find it in the absence of the 1st DC would be great

warm regards
