I have setup a SAMBA 4 box as a DC on a 2003 server standalone domain. I intend to take over as the PDC and retire the 2003 server. I am using internal DNS.

If I modify/add a DNS A entry on the 2003 server, it is propagated to SAMBA 4 very quickly. But the reverse never happens.  Executing samba-dnsupdate --verbose indicates "No DNS updates needed" and shows no errors.

"A note on DNS updates" in the "Join a domain as a DC" seems to imply that this should work but perhaps it only pertains to bind.

So can I configure SAMBA 4 (using internal DNS) to propagate DNS changes to the 2003 server or does this require the use of bind?
