Hi all,

Since I have upgraded to Samba 4.2.11 I got errors when updating group policy 
objects (GPO) on my clients (all Windows 7 Professional).

When running "gpupdate" from the command line on Windows 7 Pro Domain-Joined 
clients it states not to be able to resolve the domain controller. According to 
what I see from the logs it looks like it's related to resolving accounts.

I am running Samba 4.2.11 as an AD DC with BIND_DLZ DNS backend on Gentoo. For 
now I have reverted all installations to Samba 4.2.9 where GPO updates seem to 
work fine again.

Does anybody experience the same issues with Samba 4.2.11?
