Hello community,

i have added a new Domain Controller. But when i add it, no dns records will be created. No A-Record, no CNAME-Record and also the _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.hq.kontrast record for the new DC is missing.

This article i have checked and fix the A-records

https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Verifying_and_Creating_a_DC_DNS_Record <https://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Verifying_and_Creating_a_DC_DNS_Record>

But when i use the command host -t SRV _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.hq.kontrast i don’t got the new DC. Also it miss on kerberos SRV…

Is this an known issue? I’m using Samba 4.5.0 on DCs

Best wishes
