Thanks for the information. I'll try this.

Ok. I'll try duplicating all entries with new IP/name (except for PDC).

What I finally want to do is joining the new machine and later demote the old 
one (so this all is a kind of moving our one DC to a new machine with new 
name/IP). Should the transfer of the fsmo roles switch the PDC entry later (or 
by myself), before I demote the old server?

Or is it better currently not to do the transfer, if the DNS stuff is not 100%

It sounds like the entries should be created normally when I join the domain.
So is there anything I can provide for creating a bug report to help this 
getting fixed?
