The thing is that I need it to work with my existing domain as it's the 
productive one and the one we need to replace with samba. We have 2003 
and instead of migrating to 2008 or 2012 we plan to use samba as the 
domain servers. That's why I'm so eager to get this working, so we can 
test it in parallel with the windows servers and detect the bugs asap so 
by the time that RC or final release is made, we can migrate "saftly".
I need first to convince the bosses that this is a good way to go, and 
starting the hole domain over is not a chance.
Thanks anyway, every comment is much appreciated as all of them give me 
a new path to check a possible way to fix my setup.
