None of the commands under samba-tool dns appear to work?

./samba-tool dns update pdc-s2.accountsad.lhprojects.lan

I've already search the mailing list and google and I couldn't find any 
simple solution to this error NT_STATUS_NET_WRITE_FAULT? Is there or 
more simply way to rebuilding Samba Internal DNS ? Or file that be 
manually edited ?

Samba Ver: 4.2.0pre1-GIT-a793ac0
