I managed to install an extra DC.
The first DC is comsrv01a with ip 192.168.0.200.
I run Samba 4.1.9 and BIND 9.8.1-P1.
The new DC is srv01ham with ip 172.16.32.222.
I use the internal DNS.
I run Samba 4.1.9.
I use a permanent LAN-2-LAN VPN via my Draytek routers.
The first DC (comsrv01a, 192.168.0.200) is my primary DNS server. This is
configured in all my routers and DHCP servers.

I would like to add the new DC to DNS.

I would like to know how to fix this issue.
I found some information about this but I just can't get my head around.
Some indicate it is a bug and others write it has to do with RPC... I am
lost at this moment.
Also the log files don't lead me into the direction of a solution.
Help would be very much appreciated. Please let me know if I need to post
more details. Please help. I will reward you with beer or wine (when
