Would this explain why our dns update requests using nsupdate fail
against the internal dns? The DNS record is created once when a Linux
client joins the domain, but is never subsequently updated by requests
from (in our case sssd which uses. . .) nsupdate. Converting to bind9
dlz, works fine.

Just to add a bit more confusion, windows boxes update fine with either

Günter: did you say you have a patch to correct time-stamp on the
internal server? My boss has been pushing me to internal dns and so I'd
like to be able to test. Of course, will share back.
