Having an test environment here with four sites, sites 2-4 are connected 
to site 1 via vpn. No vpn tunnels between sites 2-4, so the sites 2-4 
can only communicate with site 1.
Each site has it's samba4 AD DC server and they are all part of the same 
Did abit of reading and found that i must use so called SiteLinks to 
replicate the site objects between sites 2-4 via site 1.
Created three SiteLinks (sl12:1,2 sl13:1,3 sl14:1,4) and three 
SiteLinkBridges(slb23:sl12,sl13 slb24: sl12,sl14 slb34: sl13,sl14). Had 
to remove the DEFAULTSITELINK entry to reassign the sites.
So far so good, restarted all servers and waiter for an while but still 
on sites 2-3 only site 1 objects get replicated, others still show 
errors like this

         site2\server2 via RPC
                 DSA object GUID: b61417b8-acb0-48ea-acf7-d8b739e3aa23
                 Last attempt @ Tue Oct 22 08:13:07 2013 CEST failed, 
                 125 consecutive failure(s).
                 Last success @ NTTIME(0)

Are SiteLinkBridges supposed to work with samba4?

Thanks in advance,
