Description Derek Lambert 2016-01-26 20:36:38 UTC
If the DnsAdmins group is moved from the Users container samba_upgradedns fails with:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/samba_upgradedns", line 262, in <module>
    paths, lp.configfile, lp)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/samba/provision/__init__.py", line 330, in find_provision_key_parameters
    dns_admins_sid = get_dnsadmins_sid(samdb, names.domaindn)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/samba/provision/sambadns.py", line 68, in get_dnsadmins_sid
_ldb.LdbError: (32, 'No such Base DN: CN=DnsAdmins,CN=Users,DC=dom,DC=creof,DC=com')

Method get_dnsadmins_sid() of sambadns.py has the Users container hardcoded in the search:

def get_dnsadmins_sid(samdb, domaindn):
    res = samdb.search(base="CN=DnsAdmins,CN=Users,%s" % domaindn, scope=ldb.SCOPE_BASE,
