Let's say you have a web server called www.domaine.ch and a mail
server called mail.domaine.ch etc. and then you have a server called
serveur.tpi.domaine.ch and some workstations called
ws1.tpi.domaine.ch, wp2.tpi.domaine.ch etc., then I would do this:

setup/provision --realm=TPI.DOMAINE.CH --domain=TPI
--adminpass=xxxxxxxx --server-role='domain controller'

so your server name is not specified when you run provision.

Then you will have a DNS zone file for tpi.domaine.ch and it will
contain A records for:

serveur IN A
ws1 IN A
ws2 IN A


The zone for domaine.ch would have A records for www and mail and MX
records etc.   You might also have NS records pointing at
serveur.tpi.domaine.ch for the tpi subdomain:

@ IN MX 10 mail
www IN A aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd
mail IN A aaa.bbb.ccc.eee
tpi IN NS serveur.tpi.domaine.ch.

but this zone might be hosted by a completely different name server.

Then the workstations should use as their primary DNS server.
