It was once working in my test environment, but I do not know why. We
had a little discussion some months ago . But most of the time I was
also having issues demoting
Windows DCs (mostly with the samba-internal DNS database which told me
the database is inconsistent as soon as I tried to add new records).
As we do have small environments with about 30 users and we do use
puppet for deployment, I have chosen not do to migration/demoting of
existing Windows domains.
I am starting now from scratch with new Samba4 domains which seems to
work very well with single or multiple domain controllers.
Sorry, not really helpful but I do not have an answer to the question.
It's just my experience.
Maybe it's because I'm using the "old" version which is used with Debian
Wheezy, I don't know.
