PD> Hello !
PD> I am the network administrator of a French high school. I have already
PD> configured a BIND9 server with dynamic DNS update from the ISC DHCP
PD> server for my zone :
PD> And I would like to add a samba4 server in this zone. How can I add
PD> the samba's DNS entries to this existing zone keeping my previous
PD> static and dynamic entries ?
PD> I can't use directly the SAMBA_DLZ module because it try to create a
PD> new zone of same name so the bind server won't start anymore.
PD> It is possible to rename the samba DLZ zone and forward the unknown
PD> entries of my zone lyc-guillaume-fichet.ac-grenoble.fr to the samba
PD> DLZ database ?
PD> It is possible to add manually the samba DNS entries ? (I don't really
PD> need the kerberos dynamic DNS because the DHCP server do this job)
PD> What is the best way to do this working ?
Why not put the Samba server in it's own DNS subdomain.
Something like: samba.lyc-guillaume-fichet.ac-grenoble.fr
Then simply setup a forward zone for
samba.lyc-guillaume-fichet.ac-grenoble.fr in your current BIND server,
so queries for items in the AD/Samba domain get handled by the Samba
internal DNS in the S4/AD Server.
Just a thought...
