I've install Samba version 4.0.0alpha15-GIT-e253281 and gotten 
everything working except DNS updates.  As far as I can tell, I followed 
the how-to online including adding the tkey lines to the named.conf and 
specifying the dns.keytab file in the /etc/sysconfig/named (this is a 
RedHat box)

When I join the domain with a windows vista box, the DNS is not being 
updated.  I'm not sure whether the update is supposed to go directly to 
named from the client or not.  I see this in the named log:
Feb 25 08:44:23 rhtest01 named[18293]: client update 
'xmen.eti/IN' denied

If the update is supposed to go through samba, then it's not getting 
added to the /usr/local/samba/private/dns_update_list (b/c there's 
nothing new in there).

Can anyone offer advice on what I might be doing wrong or suggestions to
