With help from the Samba4/HOWTO and #samba, I was able to set up a Samba
4 domain controller with Bind 9.4.7. It seems to work for the most
However, my Active Directory DNS never gets entries for any client
machines. There is an A record for the DC, but never for any clients.
I looked at 'samba_dnsupdate' and see that it gets its input from
private/dns_update_list. That list also doesn't have any A records for
clients that joined my domain after Samba provisioning. In fact, that
file hasn't been modified since provisioning.
Maybe I misunderstand the purpose of that list, and it shouldn't have
any additional A records, but in that case I cannot figure out how
clients are supposed to make their way into AD's DNS.
