Hi Kai,

fqdn hh3.hh3.site IP

cat /etc/resolv.conf
search hh3.site dragonet.es

dragonet.es=my ISP our router. Points to the external DNS of the ISP

cat /usr/local/samba/etc/smb.conf
# Global parameters
     server role = domain controller
     workgroup = CACTUS
     realm = hh3.site
     netbios name = HH3
     passdb backend = samba4
     template shell = /bin/bash
     path = /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol/hh3.site/scripts
     read only = No
     path = /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol
     read only = No
     path = /home/CACTUS
     read only = No
     path = /home/CACTUS/profiles
     read only = No
     read only = No

./provision --realm= hh3.site --domain=CACTUS --adminpass=Abc at 1234 
--server-role='domain controller' --dns-backend=SAMBA_INTERNAL

Is there a way of specifying a forwarder with your internal server?
