Hi there,

I build a samba 4.0.11 on a Debian Wheezy from source, joined a existing
AD (samba works with internal dns) and have this smb.conf:

# Global parameters
        workgroup = DOMAIN
        realm = DOMAIN.local
        netbios name = SAMBA1
        server role = active directory domain controller

        allow dns updates = nonsecure
        dns recursive queries = yes
        server services = +dns, +dnsupdate
        log file = /var/log/samba/samba.log
        max log size = 10000
        log level = 8
        debug timestamp = yes

        path = /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol/domain.local/scripts
        read only = No

        path = /usr/local/samba/var/locks/sysvol
        read only = No

When I do a testparm (samba-tool testparm) I get this error:

     Unknown parameter encountered: "dns recursive queries"
     Ignoring unknown parameter "dns recursive queries"

I can not find the proper directive for recursive queries...?

May someone help here?
