OK, that's what I thought it should do (which is what happens with DHCP and BIND secondary servers in our network).

So, I guess it's a Samba DC1 to Samba DC2 issue then?

I have read quite a bit on this.

Like many others, I followed the instructions to the letter, kinit, provision, DNS check, CNAME addition, etc.... all appear to be fine.

I am just worried that this Secondary DC is not replicating.

So, should I try an after hours fix it?

* stop Samba
* git pull
* make, install
* restart Samba

on both DCs.

How does that sound?
