"Failed to connect host 192.168.xx.49 (22******c8._msdcs.dtshrm.dt) on
port 135 - NT_STATUS_CONNECTION_REFUSED." (Which is referencing the
second DC connection failed.) 

Now, _please set the dns issue aside for the moment_ as I went to my
second DC and set log level to "10" to see what is going on and the
second DC is not generating log files. It did not create
/var/log/samba/* anything. This after a couple of restarts. I checked
the "smbd -b" output of DC2 and Samba is set to "LOGFILEBASE:

The second DC is a Ubuntu 16.04.1LTS running Samba 4.3.9 (from repo) and

Does anyone know how can I get the logs to generate? Is there something
else I "need to turn on"?
