I'm being affected by BUG 10595, it is a serious issue.

Also, the following BUGs needs to be addressed quickly, if possible, I
hope, at least, for 4.2.X (or 4.3, by blocking
https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10695 ?):

* Samba has a wrong "Dual-Stack" implementation

* samba_dnsupdate does not add/update/remove NS records

Currently, because of 10729, I can not enable IPv6 in any of my `Samba4 AD
DCs`, because there are in my network, others *perpetual* IPv4-Only `Samba4
AD DC` (located within AWS EC2, small offices, etc), so, if I enable IPv6
in one of my Samba4 DCs, then, it will trigger lots of errors on all
remaining DCs. Also, it becomes impossible to join (samba-tool domain join
... ) a brand new IPv4-Only Samba4 as a DC (the following instructions:
https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Join_a_domain_as_a_DC -  doesn't work in a
mixed environment, where you have a Dual-Stacked Samba4 AD DC ("master"),
and tries to add an IPv4-Only DC.

And about 10810, the lack of a secondary NS, brings a problem for you to
use your couple "samba4 + bind9" to publish "authoritative domains" to the
Internet. Am I right?!      :-)
