Question following HowTo build your own OpenChange/SOGo appliance:
I have been building my own SAMBA4/OpenChange appliance *MOSTLY* following
the instructions at

I am using Ubuntu-Server 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin)
OpenChange from svn co -r 3923
SAMBA4 - Samba-4.0.0Alpha18

At the step titled "Configure DNS service"
# cd /etc/bind
# mkdir samba
# cp /usr/local/samba/private/named.* samba/
# cp –rfi /usr/local/samba/private/dns samba/

my named.* files are actually in "/usr/local/samba/share/setup/" (no big
logically I would assume my dns files would be in
"/usr/local/samba/share/setup/dns" but no cookie :(

Find reveals:
find / -name "dns"

Does anyone know the correct dns file or directory to copy to the bind
