do you mean that is possible to use upgradedns to provision the dns
partitions on a samba4 DC already joined to a domain?

If I catched I will use it on my secondary DC (primary is also samba4)
to have also a secondary DNS. Does it also start replication of the dns
partitions between the DCs?

If yes, which is the best way to proceed?
My idea is to upgrade secondary DC to latest git source, pull your
branch to obtain upgradedns than run it from the secondary DC.
