The AD part AFAIK, samba4 is used as login server with file serving is
done by samba3 servers join to the domain, once in a while the samba3
server cannot reach the samba4 server and net ads testjoin can't find
any dc while kinit works. Everything starts working after hunting down a
few huge smbd processes on the samba4 dc.

We never really got a bdc up as the replication wouldn't work at all..
