[Samba] Samba 4 internal DNS - how to modify SOA record

I have the very same problem, does anybody know a way?
I am thinking of converting to BIND, modifying and then converting it back
to Internal DNS implementation.


How could one modify a SOA record in rc3? For example, NS part (not NS
record) of SOA record points to an absent Windows server. This
effectively breaks DNS updates, since there is no such server and if
corresponding A record is added, update requests from clients will
come unsigned.
Editing it directly via LDAP breaks Samba (some sort of
checksum/hash?) MMC snap-in says "Zone not loaded by DNS server", so
it is not possible to use it either. samba-tool dns add|delete|update
can't operate on SOA record.
Maybe someone could give a link to some document describing dnsRecord,
so one could forge a valid record and just change dnsRecord in DC=@
using some LDAP tool?

Thanks in advance.
Best regards,
Dmitry Khromov
