I'm the author of this documentation. I recently rewrote it and at the
same time retested the procedure with 4.5.0 and everything worked.
However, I know this does not help you. :-)

* What DNS back end do you use? Internal or BIND9_DLZ?

* Did you let 2008 auto-select a replication partner during the dcpromo
or did you select a specific DC?

* Does "samba-tool dbcheck --cross-ncs" shows any errors? Fix them.
