[Samba] Samba 4.10.7 question with external DNS Server

Hi Maurizio,
two more options I used successfully myself (actually in combination):
- BIND9_DLZ DNS Back End allows to define non-AD-managed zones that are served in parallel to AD managed zones
- bind dns_forwarder allows you to delegate what ever is not managed by bind on DC to another DNS server (in my case a pi-hole).
Best Regards, Joachim

Sorry, but the future is nearly here, flatfiles will be formally deprecated when 4.11.0 is released and removed at 4.12.0

So, as you can see, you cannot use flatfiles with Samba, this means you have a couple of options, use the DC as the dns server for your domain, or use a subdomain for the Samba AD domain.

Why bother compiling Samba yourself, you can get the latest Samba debs from here: http://apt.van-belle.nl/
