Hi Thomas,

You've given up too early. I now have a samba 4.1.5 instance that is 
joined to my domain and has replicated the AD and even accessed through 

Attaching patches that will enable you to bypass the provision test of 
your sysvol share.

Note: You must create a smb.conf with a sysvol share defined.

After provisioning, you will have to edit smb.conf and add zfsacls 
module to the sysvol share and otherwise configure the share for zfs 
before you start samba.
