I,ve looked at your howto, and it's exactly what I've did too. I also
compiled bind after I created the user'named' and added to the group
'named'. I've set the permissions on the files as in your howto, but still
no luck.

Selinux and the firewall are disabled on the samba-server and the firewall
is disabled on the win7 client machine.

Kind regards,

Roland de Lepper

> Hi all,
> I've setup samba4 according to the samba4 wiki on centOS 5.4 in KVM.
> This went without any problems. I only had to install a higher version of
> bind to 9.6.x because Centos bind in repo will install version 9.3.x.
> I've used the Fedora12 source rpms for this to build bind 9.6.x on Centos

> Then I configured bind according to the samba wiki
> (http://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Samba4/DNS)
> I did all the check in the wiki to see if bind is working. All tests
> passed.
> But in my logs a got the messages "The working directory is not writable".
> I changed the owner on /var/named to the group named, which solved that
> problem.
> Then i installed Win7 virtual in KVM and joined the domain. I can login,
> create users via dsa.msc tool on windows and see them in wbinfo -u on the
> samba4 domain controller. All looks right, except for my ddns. The zone

> I checked all the howto again and again, but couldn't find a thing which

> Is this a permission problem? I check and the group 'named' has write
