Sorry for the double mail. I wasn't sure if it went through the first time.
I answered my own question and discovered that samba4 does not use named db
files at all but it's own database. Before I was editing named db files to
add entries which was actually the wrong way to go about. The correct way
was either through Windows DNS Manager or through samba4's samba-tool.
There is absolutely no need to create db files at all as named just updates
the database though the samba so library.
Anybody know of a gui way to update the dns that is not windows based?
