We have setup separate 2 Samba4 Domains in test environments and are having some errors in DNS. The errors are the same on both domains and they are as follows.

Domain 1:
Ubuntu 12.04
Samba 4.1.0pre1-GIT-92e17d5
This domain was a clean provision as a new domain.

Domain 2:
Debian 6.0.6
Samba 4.1.0pre1-GIT-92e17d5
Classic upgrade from Samba3

When trying to add a Forwarder to DNS using the DNS Remote Administration tool on Windows 7 we receive
"The server forwarders cannot be upgraded.
This function is not supported on this system."

On both systems we are using Samba4's internal DNS.

Thank you,
