[Samba] Samba + BIND9 DLZ. DNS dosen't resolve FQDN, only short hostname

Well, I gone so far even before :-) I even deleted them with "Records 
deleted successfully", but listing the domain records, they were still 
there. That's why I thought I must have wrong syntax or so.

But looking at the record again now, they are gone. That's good.

However, that dosen't help resolve the FQDN issue.

So, next thing I will probably do, according to Your advice, is to try 
installing newer version of Samba.

I doubt it will help though, cause I doubt the 4.5 version was such 
flawed that the basic DNS function didn't work because of that.
