It appears that the HOWTO does NOT show how to use smbd and nmbd in the
way this announcement refers to.

Also, it seems Section 10 in the HOWTO, Configure kerberos DNS dynamic
updates, is not consistent with the message Andrew Bartlett sent to me
and the technical list, titled "Samba 4.0 DNS configuration."

Sorry if this is known already.

nation. If there is order in the nation, there will be peace in the
world. So let it be." -- Scottish Blessing
