In my test (two RC3 and one RC4 (the one causing DRS problems)) adding
two dns records:
1. An A record for the failing (to replicate) DC in the DOMAIN.NAME zone
2. A CNAME record for the GUID (obtained with: ldbsearch -H
/usr/local/samba/private/sam.ldb '(invocationid=*)' --cross-ncs
objectguid) of failing (to replicate) DC in the _msdcs.DOMAIN.NAME zone
which pointed at the previously created record.
Solved the DRS replication problems almost instantaneously.
