          - There is no NetBIOS browsing support (network neighbourhood)
          available for the AD domain controller. (Support in nmbd and smbd
          for classic domains and member/standalone servers is unchanged).

          .. fail.

            ms is phasing out netbios and recommending people to use globalnames zone.

              Just read the article...whats the diff between using GlobalNames Zone vs just routing all DNS through a DNS Server that has a host file entry for all clients? Because it says you have to add a CNAME entry for east client soooo... same amount of work?? (DNS server could be linux, bsd or win based since win has C:\windows\system\drivers\etc\hosts)

                  I haven't used Samba4, but shouldn't be this done automatically when you add a computer to the domain? That's what Windows AD controllers do.
