Hi again List,
I've got my Samba 4 running as a DC on my domain.local I'd like to
implement replication to have fail-over capabilities. I normally take
backups with the samba_backup script (helpful and advised).
I added a W2k8-R2 VM to my domain to have the RSAT available and then I
decided to try replication (dcpromo method) to add the Sin server to the
domain as a secondary DC, but I kept getting the "can't find A record
for blah*blah.domain.local" I tried running samba_dnsupdate --verbose
--all-names to try to create the necessary records but no joy.
This seems to only happen when I try to add the w2k8 machine to the
domain as BDC because when i add a workstation or the same machine as a
Computer to the domain it works just fine.
So after this my question for high availability and fail-over
capabilities would you recommend that I setup another Samba4 server and
"net vampire" the PDC? or what can be happening with w2k8 r2 machine?.
I'm using BIND_DLZ as backend all done ny the wiki.
Thanks for your valuable advise.
