V4.5.0 on Ubuntu 16.04.1LTS for the DC's 

V4.3.11 on Ubuntu 16.04.1LTS on member 

Hi Bob, try looking in syslog, is there anything like this:

samba_dlz: disallowing update of signer=WIN7-PC\$\@SAMDOM.EXAMPLE.COM


No, none like that. I see other samba_dlz entries of a positive nature. 

Thoughts? (Could this have anything to do with my recent dns issue? Is
some record missing?)
