Hi samba team,
which is the right way to join a new samba4 DC to a domain with a samba4
PDC having also DNS zones replicated?

PDC is running samba4 Version 4.0.0alpha18-GIT-32317b0 provisioned with
--dns-backend=BIND9_DLZ and with bind 9.9.0b1.

The secondary DC is running samba4 Version 4.0.0alpha18-GIT-c2d6509 and
bind 9.9.0b1.

I tried to join it with
samba-tool domain join SAITELITALIA DC -U administrator
and join has worked but DNS zones where not replicated between the two

With samba-tool I added replication for
but it does not work for the copy in private/dns/sam.ldb and
private/dns/sam.ldb.d/ .


Happy new year to all of you.
