[Samba] Additional Zones with Samba4 DNS

yes I use internal DNS not bind. 

how do you want me to check the DNS? I am able to resolve host normally, when a new client join the domain the DNS is updated properly as well.

yes the the machine running the DNS tool is properly logged in the domain with domain Administrator username. When I try to connect, it just says it cannot connect to DNS server. but when I try to monitor/test that DNS server with dns tool, I see that reverse dns is working, but simple dns test fails.

Best Regards,

config file smb.conf is quite unimportant for DNS. Do you use internal  Samba DNS, not bind, and did you check your DNS ? Is your user who uses the DNS tool from MS in the domain and in the domain logged on? Without a logged on Domain User with Admin Rights your are not able to connect to the DNS Server. What error message do you get?
