I have installed Samba 4 AD with bind9_dlz and automatic update.

Is this only working for A records?
The PTR is not updated, or my setup is not complete.

Where should I include /var/lib/samba/private/named.conf.update ??
Include this in /etc/bind/named.conf is no allowed. (unknown option

As I understand named.conf.update in the wright way is only update A
AAAA SRV and CNAME Records?

My setup is:

grep include /etc/bind/named.conf
include "/var/lib/samba/private/named.conf";

root at dc1:/etc/bind# cat /var/lib/samba/private/named.conf
# This DNS configuration is for BIND 9.8.0 or later with dlz_dlopen support.
# This file should be included in your main BIND configuration file
# For example with
# include "/var/lib/samba/private/named.conf";

# This configures dynamically loadable zones (DLZ) from AD schema
# Uncomment only single database line, depending on your BIND version
dlz "AD DNS Zone" {
    # For BIND 9.8.x
    # database "dlopen /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/samba/bind9/dlz_bind9.so";

    # For BIND 9.9.x
    # database "dlopen

    # For BIND 9.10.x
    database "dlopen /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/samba/bind9/dlz_bind9_10.so";
