I have run into an issue where the DNS records added by a net ads join seem to be being scavenged. From what I understand, Windows servers/workstations check in (update their host record) on the AD DNS server on a regular basis. So the question is, how can I have samba/winbind do the same?
I could just setup a cron job that executes: net ads dns register -P
But that's kind of ugly.
I know I can't be the first person to see this behavior. Is there a more elegant solution?
