[Samba] Replication fails after DC re-joined to domain

Further update: I can now connect to the DNS server with Windows RSAT tool - after deleting the gencache.tdb database and running net cache flush.
However, the samba_dnsupdate replicate command still fails with the default of nsupdate, even though kinit is successful. But, using the option --use-samba-tool allows the command to succeed. So the error is presumably coming from nsupdate. Any ideas how to debug this?
