Should add...

I'm using the Internal Samba DNS, not BIND_DLZ.

I noticed that Louis and others appear to be using BIND, and get the feeling BIND is preferred...
Is there a good reason to avoid Samba internal DNS? I, at least in the case I'm testing for, will be using a regular BIND server for everything outside the AD site. [Samba/Active Directory is being setup in a 3rd level domain, which it will have exclusive control over. Like - sambadom.mydomain.com.]

GSvs> As part of that process, you need to add a computer account and change some security settings.

GSvs> I can create user/computer accounts fine. It's just when I try

GSvs> A quick search doesn't seem to find anything.

GSvs> Nothing in the logs that seems relevant.
GSvs> Suggestions? [Just point me in the right general
GSvs> direction...unless you have something better...]
