No, try running this on your linux clients and DCs:

ps ax | grep [a]vahi

If you get any output, then avahi is running and could be getting in
the way, if it is running, try stopping it.

If you are using Network Manager, then this uses dnsmasq, open its conf
file, find the dnsmasq line and comment it out.

Check that the nameserver in /etc/resolv.conf is the DCs ipaddress.
