question regarding config parameters to use ntvfs

Hi all,

when using the current samba4 beta2 from git, parameters have to
be added to the configuration file to use ntvfs instead of s3fs.

I use samba4 as DC only without additional shares, so I would
like to stay with ntvfs.

In the Whatsnew document it says that the following needs to be
added to the config file:

    server services = +smb -s3fs
    dcerpc endpoint services = +winreg +srvsvc

but when doing so the following error appears in log.samba:

 /usr/local/samba/sbin/samba_dnsupdate: Unknown parameter encountered:
"dcerpc endpoint services"

Is it safe to just omit the "dcerpc endpoint services" stuff ?

Thank you for your help.

best regards
