Hello Marc, 

1. The error message is 

"The host record test.salem.int cannot be created. Refused" 

and in the event log 

"The following application directory partition has no security descriptor reference domain.   Application directory partition: DC=DomainDnsZones,DC=salem,DC=int  The root domain will be used instead.   User Action  Set the security descriptor reference domain for this application directory partition." 

2. Yes, When you create a DNS entry it is replicated to the Win DC. AND if you modify a DNS entry it is replicated from the WIN DC to the samba DC's. 

3. Disabling Samba on the DC before creating it on the win DC does not do anything. 

4. Samba first built and populated the domain.

* What is the error message? 
* When you create a DNS entry on the Samba server, is it replicated to 
the Win DC? 
* Does the behaviour changes, if you temporary shutdown Samba on the 
first DC while you create the record? 
* Who build the domain? I mean: Who was first and populated the AD? 
Windows or Samba?
