Hi Jean

Did u pull out the latest git version?

If u using amb64 and ubuntu 10.04 then u can get all samba4 deb file from
I know jelmer just ship a alpha13 release for debian, but I hadn't had the
chance yet to check it out.

net vampire replication between Windows 2003 R2 release works great with
samab4. I did it several times without any problem.
I wonder if u had Exchange 2003 before installation Exchange  2007?
If so it could be interesting to check it also in my env...

Can u drop a comment on this please...?
