I am not sure that win2k forest level migration is really supported for
switching to samba directly . I usually first upgrade to win2k3 and
upgrade the forest at 2k3 level before switching to samba4.
When doing the switch you might also have to be careful about the _msdcs
subdomain that should be migrated to its own ForestDnsZones partition.
hope this helps,
