Hi Klaus,

I haven't used that tool for at least 13 years but I do recall that, 
among other things, it read from the registry. Coupled with the fact 
that Samba 4 AD is not a complete implementation of AD I can't imagine 
that it could possibly work. More to the point, I'd be seriously 
concerned about the results. This is not something I'm prepared to test 
in a production environment and a test environment may not reveal all 
the problems, at least not within the time frame I need to deal with.
