All we can offer at this stage is what we have, I'm sorry. We hope to
resolve the replication issues when we get a chance.
We similarly have no support for replicating the contents of sysvol
(FRS/DFR-R). However, many of our users still find what we have

The Beta will not feature either a finished internal DNS server (it is
missing secure updates at this point), nor a fix for this issue at this
point. The beta is scheduled for tomorrow. We do hope to address the
replication issue, but it affects the dlz_bind9 and internal servers
equally (they read the same database).
