I have successfully compiled and configured Samba for ADS support and
DNS updates.
Everything works just fine and I can issue "./net ads dns register -P"
and it dies update
However as we have huge amount of DC's all over the world, when Samba
updates DNS, it updates
one randomly chosen DC DNS and then replication process takes a while so
sometimes it takes up to
1 hour to replicate new IP all across the sites.
My question is - is it possible somehow to specify what exactly AD
server I do update DNS record at?
