We are working to enable support for Windows 2000 DCs as a target for a
'samba-tool join' (which will then do what our previous 'vampire' tool
did, and make Samba an additional DC in that domain). 

Some fixes for this were made yesterday, but we know that some other
issues remain.  Our automated testing infrastructure is being extended
to support this, and so we should be able to reliably handle this in the
near future.
