No, your problem is that you do not understand AD DNS ;-)

Your Samba AD DC is authoritative for the AD dns domain and should only 
know about the AD domain, it should forward anything outside the AD dns 
domain to another dns server.

 From reading your output from Louis's script, it is clear that you are 
trying to use a Samba AD DC as if it was a standalone server, this will 
never work. Samba doesn't recommend using an AD DC as a fileserver, but 
if you do, you must follow a few rules:

You must set all permissions from Windows, you cannot use things like 
'force user' etc

You must use winbind for authentication, this means that the 
libnss-winbind links must be set up.

There are others, see here:



You will probably be better off setting up a Unix domain member and 
using this as the fileserver.
