Samba4 : samba-tool dns add


I have set up Samba4 on Ubuntu Server 13.04 64bit.

I have tried adding a Windows 7 Client machine which is set to resolve DNS from this server (using Samba's internal DNS Server) but I get an error message stating that the SRV record was queried successfully yet the domain controller could not be found. It states that common reasons for this are that there are no A records for the domain controller.

I know that the samba-tool command needs to be used as such:

samba-tool dns add <server> <zone> <name> <A|AAAA|PTR|CNAME|NS|MX|SRV|TXT> <data>

If my server is called server01 and my domain is example.local and the IP address of the server is 192.168.1.1 what would the command be that I would need to enter in to setup an A record for my SERVER01 host.

(Providing that an A record is what I need to resolve this).............

I think you have to do an additional step:

Code:
samba-tool domain join samdom.example.com DC -Uadministrator --realm=samdom.example.com
See here for full details. Also check the section
Quote:
Check required DNS entries of the new host
which deals with the missing A record problem.

samba should automatically add the computer object in the directory when it joins the domain. (could be wrong)

Have you manually added the samba DNS server address in your Windows TCP/IP settings?

I haven't tried it. But according to the wiki page, it doesn't work 100% automatically and you have to add it manually.

Im not sure if i will be able to be much help.

You will need to make sure you can at least ping the samba server. Then set the samba servers/Active Directory (DNS server) IP address manually in Windows. Then see if you are able to join the domain.

Kind Regards
Marios
