[Samba] DNS updates fail

   We are trying to live without DHCP hardcodings, but it has proved to be 
hard. When the IP address has changed, running 'net ads dns register' just 
says "DNS update failed!" even when using domain admin creds. And
rejoining the domain updates forward dns but not the reverse.

Is this a bug or a feature? I'm using Ubuntu 10.04alpha with samba 3.4.6 
against a W2008 R2 domain..
