Hi Team,

Issue :- I am not able to access samba share on windows client machine with domain name but able to access with IP

Further Details:-
We had 2 old samba 3.6.6 setup on hp-ux 11iv3, configured as Active Directory member server, We upgraded both hp-ux samba to 4.9.0 version.
For a week both setup works fine, In which we were able to access share of both hp-ux machines by domain name from windows client.
Now we are only able to access 1 share from IP only not with domain name, while other machine works fine.
smb.conf and other system setting as same in both machine and both machines are member to same Windows Active Directory Server.

Error message:-
On comparing logs of both machine below seems to be relevant error messages.
