Hi Andrew,

I've released resolv_wrapper 1.1.3 and socket_wrapper 1.1.4 to use our 
internal DNS server for testing. It works fine for the standard AD_DC but it 
fails setting up the fl2003dc:local environment. I don't know why it doesn't 
work there yet. I will look into this next week, if you want to investigate 
earlier, you need the changes from here:


Then run:

make -j testenv SELFTEST_TESTENV="fl2003dc:local"

It might be another bug in our DNS server ...
