Sorry, I can't understand what you mean with "if you could locate where
the records got put"...
Are you're asking me to create the DNS record by hand with RSAT on
SRVAD_OLD, then run samba-tool join again?
If so, yes I've tried to create the record manually and re-run
samba-tool with the same error.
Sorry for the misunderstand
