Thanks for your time! :-)

I can live with that. I only needed to input 4 entries manually (although I made that a challenge as well, see below)

Aaaagh! @#!%@%!

Thanks for pointing that out. _msdcs is a zone! I did not realize that when I got the entries from the file /var/lib/samba/dns_update_list. The records are in place now.

I suppose the DNS entries in the other locations are not necessary for domain control on my RODC? I will know next week if DC2 starts being used. 

To make my RODC ready for duty should DC1 fail I added, using the windows DNS manager:
1) a NS record pointing to my RODC (DC2) as name server in the AD. 
2) a A record in ad.example.nl with blank hostname ('same as parent folder') pointing to the ip address of DC2
And I will preload user en computer accounts.

@Rowland: thank you very much for the help, much appreciated!

 
regards,

 Tom
