samba-4.0.0 x86_64, CentOS6.3

My Samba4 / AD is up and running after migrating this weekend.  Testing
looked good and the domain *is working* but there are some issues.

Automatic DNS update is not working.  Workstations seem to be
registering their names but joining a server to the domain works but
fails with a error - and the DNS record is *not* added.

[root at crew etc]# net ads join -U Administrator
Enter Administrator's password:
Using short domain name -- BACKBONE
Joined 'CREW' to realm 'micore.us'
DNS update failed!
