There are a lot of information in the HowTos. And all stuff I wrote, I 
had linked on the main pages (most on 
https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Samba). Often visit the Wiki. It's 
growing. :-)

I don't think this should go to the BIND HowTo. The general DNS HowTo is 
a better place for that. But I've added a link in the BIND HowTo to it.

- Currently I have a BIND backend.
- The files in /usr/local/samba/private/dns/sam.ldb.d/ belong to group 
named (This was done on provisioning).
- I switch over to internal. group is still named.
- I set root:root to all of that files
- Switch back to bind backend.
- Group is set to named automatically when I run samba_upgradedns.


So I can't follow you. Or do you mean something else?
