Hello Amitay,

I have recognized that with Microsoft DNS we have _msdcs listed
under the domain, in our case novanetwork.loc. When I use your
upgradedns script to generate the DNS stuff for bind_dlz we get
a seperate entry _msdcs.novanetwork.loc

Is this on purpose or did something go wrong ?

Thank you for your kind help.

best regards
