    - 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.

    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.
