Does the samba4.vscem.westernsydney.edu.au exist only inside the AD? Or
do you have defined it in BIND (named.conf), too?

What is the output of
# ldbsearch -H /usr/local/samba/private/sam.ldb '(objectClass=dnsZone)'
-b 'DC=samdom,DC=example,DC=com' --cross-ncs name

BTW: What do you do, if we release Samba 5.0? Do you rename your AD DNS
zone(s)? ;-) We while ago we had an internal team discussion, if 4.3
should be 4.3 or 5.0 to get this misconception out of the world, that
Samba4 means Samba-AD-only.

G√ľnter answerd this a while ago:

Sorry. Never used DNS views.
