Hi Steve,

thanks for your replay. I've found these artikel on
sd. Two questions:

1. Sould i only type for the PATH-Variable on the shell "
PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/samba/lib/pkgconfig/" ? Or should i edit a
special file to type that into that special file?

2. At next shoould i try Mehtod1 or Method 2?
If i need method1 do i have to install bind anymore?

We haven't tested the internal dns recently but our production on 4.1.7 with
bind9_dlz we can confirm that:
sssd with the ad backend and windows clients alike update both forward and
reverse zones.
