I'm using samba4 rc1 since 2 months as PDC with samba4 internal DNS. 
Everything works but i can't ping domain clients even from samba 
machine. Clients are named as station00x.domain.lan where x is station 
number. But even on SambaPDC i can't ping it with for exapmle:
ping station004.domain.lan or ping stacja003. Nslookup says that there 
is no host like that. Funny becouse domain works ok, from machines 
joined to domain i can't also ping other stations with their names. 
Query to samba internal dns returns that the hostnames are unknown.

I need it to remotely shutdown computeres with windows shutdown command.

Any idea?
