Hi Preston,

I'm in the middle of that process right now. I'm migrating our w2003r2 
domain to S4 (two servers with dns, dhcp), so we may share experiences 
in the process.
I'm also writting this down in spanish and english so I can publish the 
process in the wiki to help others do this migration.
At this time I have both servers added to the wAD and DNS servers (bind) 
as wDNS slaves working.
I'm giving this a few days to see if no one complaints and then I'm 
planning to get the DHCP working and dynamically updating the DNS servers.
I still need to understand the BIND interaction with Samba 4 so I get 
sure everything works as supposed, but I need some more time to do this.
The last step in the migration plan is to get Samba 4 as the only domain 
servers and see if the clients don't notice the change :-)
