Running a Samba & AD domain side-by-side

Hi all,

I've done some extensive searching and nothing quite fits the problem.

We currently have a linux domain controller for the domain "abc" and I want to run a second domain side-by-side from a windows serer 2008 R2 box "xyz".

Is it possbiel to run "abc" & "xyz" at the same time? So far I've not been sucessful. When trying to create a new domain in an existing forest I get the following error:

The domain name "abc" might be a NetBIOS domain name.  If this is the case, verify that the domain name is properly registered with WINS.

(error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR)

The query was for the SRV record for

Common causes of this error include the following:

- The DNS SRV records required to locate a AD DC for the domain are not registered in DNS. These records are registered with a DNS server automatically when a AD DC is added to a domain. They are updated by the AD DC at set intervals. This computer is configured to use DNS servers with the following IP addresses:


- One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child zone:

. (the root zone)
I know it's possible at some level, but will I have to create a new DNS server to go along with this new windows domain? (something I really really don't want to do...)

Thanks very much,
