# Allow unsigned updates | don't allow any updates | only allow signed updates allow dns updates = True | False | Signed # Query remote name servers on behalf of the clients dns recursive queries = yes | no # If recursive queries = yes is set, the following is also needed dns forwarder = <ip addr of external dns server>
Run during make test
TDB_NO_FSYNC=1 make test TESTS=samba.tests.dns
Run against external servers (Windows or BIND)
DC_SERVER_IP=<dns server ip> DC_SERVER=<dns server name> REALM=<dns server domain name part> PYTHONPATH=`pwd`/bin/python ./source4/scripting/bin/subunitrun samba.tests.dns
BIND 9.8.0 DLZ plug-in
