If you read the release notes for 4.7.0, you will find this:
Improvements to DNS during Active Directory domain join
The 'samba-tool' domain join command will now add the A and GUID DNS
records (on both the local and remote servers) during a join if
possible via RPC. This should allow replication to proceed more
The mname element of the SOA record will now also be dynamically
generated to point to the local read-write server. 'samba_dnsupdate'
should now be more reliable as it will now find the appropriate name
server even when resolv.conf points to a forwarder.
This means, you shouldn't have to add anything manually, the join and
the first running of 'samba_dnsupdate' should do it for you.
Please do not reply direct to me or the the Samba Team, reply to the
Samba mailing list (I have CC'ed the Samba list)
