Hi !

I bounce on the Mr Sloop's post ([Samba] DDNS / DHCPd && Internal DNS or 
BIND_DLZ) to ask what's the easiest way to allow Linux clients to update 
themself their DNS record in the Samba4 AD server (with BIND_DLZ Dns 

It works well with windows clients, but with Linux clients joined to the 
domain, with a valid Kerberos ticket, the client receive a error 
"ERROR_DNS_INVALID_MESSAGE" and the famous "DNS update failed!" message.

Is there a hack ? Thanks in advance.
