Description

Subject is FreeNAS acting as AD DC and as a CIFS and NFS Share
I found out that the dns forwarding is not working, or was not working ever correctly? Documentation is rare, so I have not the perfect idea how to set it up correctly

The nslookup from a windows client shows:

C:\WINDOWS\system32>nslookup ns.domain.tld
Server: nas.domain.tld
Address: 192.168.1.168
  • nas.domain.tld can't find ns.domain.tld: Non-existent domain

C:\WINDOWS\system32>nslookup ns.domain.tld 192.168.1.14
Server: ns.domain.tld
Address: 192.168.1.14
Name: ns.domain.tld
Address: 192.168.1.14

smb4.conf
dns forwarder = 192.168.1.14

I researched already many hours, and my only clue is here:

samba-tool dns serverinfo localhost
(...)
aipServerAddrs : ['192.168.1.168']
aipListenAddrs : ['192.168.1.168']
aipForwarders : []
dwLogLevel : 0
(...)

aipForwarders is empty although smb4.conf shows the forwarder, and so does the GUI

I am not a specialist yet in debugging samba, but i am on my way :)

could you please help? maybe you need a debug? I would attach one anyway if I would know how to do it.

Thanks for your support and BR

John: is this something we want to support? If not, are you aware of any good resources to point Anton to?

This was known to work in 9.*, so not clear on what is wrong here. It also works in 11, have you tried?
