Not yet. Would love to see some work on this but I

wrong please let me know :-).

> DFS-R replication of SYSVOL folder requires all domain controllers using Win2008 instead of Win2003 (which only supports NTFRS). I expect this is at least one of the main reasons for MS to make a difference between the domain compatibility 2003 and domain compatibility 2008 setting?!

If anyone wants to take this on we'd be very interested
getting it merged into mainline Samba !
