Rowland, thank you!

I've red the "Setting_UP" and many others up and down...

And I know the recommendations, but sometime one needs a special setting.

Even if dns-nameservers is useles, no harm, but I wish o single
name space for all I have, with a part of it in an AD.

That's why I'm trying workarounds and hope on the help of the community,
which has seemingly already achieved such things - as you say - even

It is clear to me, that the Samba Team cannot support any possible
configuration, but a simple workable setup for all.

On the other way, Microsoft doesn't support officially Windows working
flawlessly with Samba in place of it's own servers, but we are doing this
all the time ;)

When I'll reach a stable situation for the clients I have now, I'll freeze
the installation for another couple of  years and live happily with it.
