I have updated samba_upgradedns script now to handle upgrading dns
provision even after domain join. The new code is in my dns-wip


You can run samba_upgradedns multiple times without any side effects.
Let me know if that works for you.

The ultimate goal is to use built-in dns server, so that samba does
not have to depend on external programs (BIND) for running. For time
being, BIND9 option is supported till built-in dns server becomes
fully operational.
