The dnsutils package was missing, added it (typo in a script).
Below is smb.conf, was it perhaps also the reason reversedns didn work
I had not mentioned that earlier, it wasnt something critical we thought.
And i wasnt sure either if thats normal for Samba
netbios name = DC1
realm = dom.mydomain.com
workgroup = dom
dns forwarder = 172.16.7.1
server role = active directory domain controller
idmap_ldb:use rfc2307 = yes
bind interfaces only = yes
interfaces = 172.16.7.40
loglevel = 3
winbind enum users = yes
winbind enum groups = yes
wins support = yes
wins server = 172.16.7.40
path = /var/lib/samba/sysvol/dom.mydomain.com/scripts
read only = No
path = /var/lib/samba/sysvol
read only = No
