The script was designed to take output from the dhcp server and use that 
to update the Samba AD DC dns records in AD. You, by your own admission, 
are letting it do that, but then trample all over it by changing IP's 
manually. If you require the computer to have a different IP when in 
production, then I would suggest you set it up with a fixed IP in the 
first place and not use dhcp at all.
