Yes, i know. I hoped, that the join part with DLZ works out differently. 
So if i understand it right and i found a few older threads on this. 

Then we are left with the 2 possible workarounds as mentions in the list before. 
See: https://www.spinics.net/lists/samba/msg158588.html
Adjust the code of samba a bit. 

Dennis pointed out, and option to upgrade/create partitions on w2k3 before the joins. 
Found here: https://lists.samba.org/archive/samba/2019-July/224515.html
But as far i know that server is gone. 

The last option is this bug to be fixed.

Why i posted the last parts, so you understand my thoughts. 
Before i want to try these, i want to be sure the other parts are all checked. 
I was hoping to find that a join with bind9_dlz would help out. I dont know that. 

But if you really sure it is not, please tell, then im left without options, 
and then is up too you guys. Do you want a bug report on it? 

Looks like this one is releated:

Well, nothing to be sorry about, but maybe its time to start a bughunt on this one, 
because this should get a higher. 

You guys to that fast, i can follow all changes, i try to but that hard todo.

Thank you (again) so far.
