I just transfered fsmo roles from one DC to my newer DC and all went
well. Thank you Samba team!! Great documentation, BTW. 

My domain (basically) consists of one ADDC, one member server and two
W10 clients and one W7 client. 

While setting up the newer DC had been running some nslookup on the DC's
and decided to run nslookup on my member server and do not know if I
have discovered and possible problem or not. 

On the member server, running nslookup returns: 

root at dtmbr01:~# nslookup dtmbr01

Name:    dtmbr01.dtshrm.dt
Address:         <<<< note: this is the member server ip

root at dtmbr01:~# nslookup

** server can't find NXDOMAIN 

Does this mean I need to add reverse dns for the member server to the
