The Hostname is the NetBIOS-Name and it's an Address, so it must be
unique. So fs1 can only be used once.

The end result would be to have clients at each site resolve the fs01 name to the local site while retaining the credential synchronization across the two locations. We were initially using the BIND9_DLZ dns backend however we were having difficulties in getting the dynamic updates workign from windows clients. Is the above senario possible to accomplish with a SAMBA_INTERNAL dns backend? If so could you point me in the correct direction.
To manage this you should uses sites and subnet-setting. So create sites
and subnet and everythin will work
