Hi, I will second that.

The command 'host -t SRV _ldap._tcp.home.lan.' Returns
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

I do not seem to have a nameserver, this is on a newly compiled git pull 
-- Samba 4.0.0beta9-GIT-d0159f6

provisioned with:

provision --realm=home.lan --domain=HOME --adminpass=<MYPASS> 
--dns-backend=SAMBA_INTERNAL --use-rfc2307 --server-role=dc

What are we missing?
