behavior lately ? I am sure that it worked in the past without this
additional entry in smb.conf.

to access the netlogon share directly from the samba4 DC with both
smbclient3 and smbclient, which both show the same symptom as the
Windows machine. When accessing the share via //domainname/netlogon the
connection can not be established. When using //dcname/netlogon it is
working with both smbclient tools.

Hello Matthieu, 

please find attached a capture file of a
failed connection attempt to
