Thanks for all that helped - afaik the join of the domain worked, the  
servers will see each other, I can see the samba4-server in Domain  
Controllers tab in AD.

Two problem still exist:

How to move the DNS-Server from the Win2k-DC to the Samba4-Server?  
Ideally to a bind9-installation on the samba4-Server? When  
provisioning samba4 with a new domain I get the Bind9 config templates  
which work quite well. But on joining the exitent Win2k-Domain I  
didn't get these...

And when running "samba-tool drs showrepl" the "INBOUND NEIGHBORS" and  
"OUTBOUND NEIGHBORS" are both empty - otherwise the output seems to  
look ok. Is this ok?

Perhaps someone is able to help me over that last things.
