I'm currently working on documentation about a SYSVOL replication
workaround between Samba and Windows DCs. For that yesterday I joined
three times a 2008R2 DC to an existing Samba driven AD with two Samba
DCs. So I can at least say, that this works, as I wrote it down a while
ago here:

Can you check this guide carefully, if you maybe missed something?

Is there anything special in your AD? Maybe AD sites? What DNS are you
using? BIND9_DLZ or internal?

Does the Samba log says anything during the join?
