You need to create reverse lookup zone-files first with ex: samba-tool dns
zonecreate yoursamba4server 135.168.192.in-addr.arpa
Then add your windows clients and the record is made.
Do not make it by hand

Betreff: [Samba] FW: Samba4 and A-record file shares


I am new to Samba4 and have installed the latest package 4.1.9 and have it
working at I am able to join PC's Win7 and Server 2012R2. I
am able to browse to the hostname (\\test) and the IP (\\ of
the Samba4 server with access.

I have downloaded the Remote server tools and am able to manage AD and DNS.
All seems to be working except for accessing files shares via A-records. I
have created a couple A-records  (stec - and (sharetec - I am able to browse to \\stec and \\sharetec, but I am not
able to access the folders/files there including the sysvol and netlogon
directories. I have googled and cant seem to find anyone with similar posts.
Is there any info on A-records and samba4 shares? Any help would be
appreciated, thank you.
