I'm still trying to figure out of my samba DC which has received by 
transfer all 7 FSMO roles is actually doing DNS.  When I do this 
serverinfo command it fails:

athena:~# samba-tool dns serverinfo athena
Password for [administrator at EDM-INC.COM]:
ERROR(runtime): uncaught exception - (9717, 'WERR_DNS_ERROR_DS_UNAVAILABLE')
   File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/samba/netcmd/__init__.py", 
line 177, in _run
     return self.run(*args, **kwargs)
   File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/samba/netcmd/dns.py", line 
564, in run
     None, 'ServerInfo')

When I do the command on the other DC (which is a server 2003 machine), 
it works.

Any ideas on what this means?
