[Samba] Suggestions for cross site domain

Hi James,

Command to join:

sudo samba-tool domain join int.thevoiceasia.com DC -Uadministrator 

I can reproduce the problem in the UK and it seems to be something to 
do with IPv6.  As far as I'm aware, although my network switches support 
IPv6, I have never set it up.

I have disabled IPv6 addresses on all the DCs a few days ago.  I 
suppose it is possible part of my original domain set up harbours some 
IPv6 shenanigans but it certainly isn't intended.

To reproduce:

New UK Server with IPv6 enabled even though my DCs themselves report no 
IPv6 addresses (default state):

All OK

New UK Server with IPv6 disabled:

ERROR(exception): uncaught exception - Failed to find a writeable DC 
for domain 'int.thevoiceasia.com'

Does anyone know how I stop IPv6 being used on join?
