Hello to the list!
I was trying to follow all the FAQ and guide about it but I still didn't 
obtain the result.
I'm using the samba4 obtained with apt-get and Samba_internal as dns 
solution. I attached the importants file of my last attempt but the 
result is always the same.
Samba 4 is working properly because the shared folder is visible from 
the other Windows 7 PCs of the network and also writable. I can access 
also to the Users folder.
I also tried like an older guide said to add the profiles section into 
Whenever I try to make a samba_dnsupdate --verbose I obtain a failed to 
find for each line that is is supposed to update.
Between the try it happen once that it was properly updating it... but 
it wasn't visible by the pack on windows that is used to handle a remote 
Active Directory Server.
It happen once that I was able to see it as an Active Directory 
server... and even check the detail of the users I created but it didn't 
work after the reboot.
network 192.168.1.x
active directory server on
realm internal.playtravel.it
hostname samdom.internal.playtravel.it
Please help me 'cause I really have no idea what to try next...
I even made the active directory server as a wins server and set it up 
into the clients... no result
of course on the client the first DNS Server is

Looking forward to the replies

Thanks a lot
