Well yes, (embarrassed) I was looking only with one eye. With both eyes I
can see the fields; the second eye has grasped, that some fields are base64

btw. unicode passwords: could I set them to passwords from the old NT
(I decided to start with a fresh ad-dc, against classic-upgrade, in order to
avoid possible errors from the old files and SIDs. So I'm willing to create
all my users again per script. But passwords and machine credentials would
be gorgeous.)

Yes, I can. Each time I write into the ad-dc a "hosts allow =" - wbinfo -u or -g would give no output any more
(Samba Version 4.3.9-Ubuntu) on the ad-dc and output error on the domain
Having the "hosts allow" set on the domain member seems OK. I didn't try, if
it is also effective...

Sorry I do not understand what "samba_dnsupdate" is doing, once I have
already all the domain records fixed in zone files and I'll disable the
clients per registry hack to try to update dns? Please, why do I need it?
How is it working?

Well, I have a helluva of respect facing self compilations with cryptic
I need to stay with the repositories. There are the people knowing this

Best regards
