I am running all of these commands from the PDC DC1.
smb.conf does have a
dns forwarder = 192.168.1.2
samba-001 the actual host name, and also a PDC, in the same domain.
I would like to have the alias my-server point to samba-001.
I added a CNAME record:
bin/samba-tool dns add 127.0.0.1 mydomain.com my-server CNAME samba-001
I can query it.
bin/samba-tool dns query 127.0.0.1 mydomain.com my-server CNAME
Password for [administrator at MYDOMAIN.COM]:
Name=, Records=1, Children=0
CNAME: samba-001. (flags=f0, serial=6, ttl=900)
Host finds it.
host -t CNAME my-server.mydomain.com
my-server.mydomain.com is an alias for samba-001.
I cannot ping it, it is not resolving properly.
ping samba-001, resolves to the proper IP
ping samba-001.mydomain.com, resolves to the proper IP
ping my-server, ping: unknown host
ping my-server.mydomain.com, ping: unknown host
