Well, I have discovered the proximate cause of why samba-4.4 is not
listening on 53. It is because the DNS service dies due to missing
files in /var/db/samba4/private/. Specifically dns_update_list. There
are a number of missing files in the samba error logs.
No such file or directory: '/var/db/samba4/private/spn_update_list'
No such file or directory: '/var/db/samba4/private/dns_update_list
Also these files are present on the samba-4.3 server but not on the
I have no recollection or notes respecting having to manually copy or
create these files. Nor can I find a reference to dns_update_list on
the Samba wiki.
