[Samba] Does automatic DNS PTR generation in Samba4 AD DC work at all?

Hello again,

to make reverse DNS work on the fly with samba 4.1  you just have to create the reverse lookup zone with samba-tool,ex:
samba-tool dns zonecreate your-samba-dns-server 135.168.192.in-addr.arpa. 
Then every client that register will auto get a reverse entry.
If you do it by hand the automatic dns update of the client will be denied in your log files and will not succeed.

Betreff: [Samba] Does automatic DNS PTR generation in Samba4 AD DC work at all?


I'm currently running a test setup with Samba4 internal DNS (Version 4.1.5 from Debian backports) and 2 clients (Linux and a Windows).

Everything seems to work so far.

However, I do not manage to get automatic PTR generation working. I'm using the internal DNS at the moment, but I wouldn't mind changing to bind if this will make it work.

While reverse DNS seem to work with manually generated entries (from Windows DNS Manager, samba-tool does not work for this either) the automatic generation does not seem to work.

When trying to trigger generation in mmc it tells me that the entry already exists.

Is this a known issue?
