Hello Rowland

1) I update samba4 to Version 4.11.2, the error "
> ERROR(runtime): uncaught exception - (9711" disappear.

2) Now have a question to configure a external dns:
There is a docu or guide for that ? I found that -->

3) The parameters  dns forwarder is required ?

# Global parameters
        dns forwarder = xx..xx.xx.xx.

4) Another more fine question
We actually only resolv a cup of 20/30 entries or nameservers on the
network and nothing else, if dnsmasq have these records setting on local,
even so dnsmasq query the samba AD or just query if not found on local.
