So, you are using Samba without problem, it is just that when you try
to use Bind9 instead of the internal dns server, your problems start.

Let's just recap

You have run 'samba_upgradedns'
You have altered smb.conf
You have configured 'named.conf' correctly
The Samba 'named.conf' file is readable by 'named' (this should be
'rw-r--r--' i.e. world readable)

But, even though everything looks okay, Bind9 will not start.

This is strange, there doesn't seem to be any reason for it.

Is anybody using the combination of Centos 7, Samba 4.8.3 and Bind9
without problems ?
