You will already find general information on the internal DNS and the BIND DLZ module and documentation about Bind as DNS Backend in the Wiki.By default, Samba creates the following two forward zones during provisioning/upgrading (of course with your own domain name): The Samba internal DNS is a new implementation.Only if you know with certainty that the updates get sent only to a local DNS server should you run the Dynamic DNS Updates service.Most home users who use DSL/Cable routers as DHCP/NAT servers to facilitate multiple host connections to the Internet should turn off dynamic DNS updates.A working Active Directory is heavily based on a working DNS.
In the example shown above, the LDNS is not configured with a local zone for 168.192.
My question is that my reverse lookup zones are broken.
I cannot use Windows Reverse to query a Unix machine and I cannot use QIP to query a windows machine. My goal is to use dynamic updates to update the reverse lookup record in QIP and hopefully windows DNS. I simply want to get reverse DNS lookup's workgroups across platforms.
Similarly, steps 6-8 update the inverse mapping from the IP address to the domain name (type PTR RR).
In the correct setup, the LDNS should point the DHCP client to a domain name server (could be itself) inside the internal network.
