Operation in the presence of subdomains is not supported.  When we do
add it, we will attempt to be a GC and replicate the GC partitions for
the whole forest.  This information is critical to the correct
operation of the DsCrackNames interface.

A smaller set of objects is replicated initially, but the whole domain
is replicated once Samba starts.
