Once again, Bob is in 'the land of unknown bind knowledge.' 

What type of data am I adding? 

Shouldn't dns_update be run when adding the member server? 

Is this a "simple-bind-dn"?

The member server on "real hardware" cannot join, well sort of. When I "join", I get: net ads join -U Administrator Enter Administrator's password: Using short domain name -- DTS***M Joined 'DTMBR01' to dns domain 'dts***m.lan' DNS Update for dtmember01.dts***m.lan failed: ERROR_DNS_UPDATE_FAILED DNS update failed: NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL And when I "leave", I get: net ads leave -U Administrator Enter Administrator's password: Deleted account for 'DTMBR01' in realm 'DTS***M.LAN' So, I look for what where?
> Hi Bob, your machine is actually joining the domain, it is the dns adding bit that is failing, try joining again and see if you can connect from another client, if it doesn't, run 'samba-tool dns add --help' and from this work out how to add the computers dns records.
