    Ok now you have me confused. Which is understandable considering we are
dealing with windows.
    Yes I read the wiki. I read just about everything I could before 
asking for help.
     I setup up a test DC1 and DC2 and everything is working fine there. 
With the
same configuration. But there is no bind on the DC servers. I got into 
trouble with
bind running on the same machine as the samba DC.
      Yes I am talking about a standard bind zone file. I believe my 
issue is not the zone
file but in how to run bind and the DC controller on the same machine 
without port 53
conflicting.  Do I need to setup the BIND9_DLZ Module?
