Thanks so much for these documentations, as they've helped me 
troubleshoot my Samba AD DC

I have some questions regarding, 

(1) I'm using Samba AD DC only, not Microsoft Active Directory

(2) I'm configuring a second DC

(3) Kerberos was not working properly on my first DC but now is

(4) And, DNS/Kerberos is working properly on my second DC

(5) As I understand it, the Samba AD DC packages are to be installed 
BEFORE the join

(6) However, I am unclear whether I am to provision my second DC before 
the join

(7) Or, does the join finish the provision for me?

Note to Rowland -- Because Kerberos was not working properly on my 
first/original DC, could that be the problem with OpenChange shutting 
down my Samba AD DC?  You're aware of my struggle in that regard.

thx so much
