When I installed samba4, this machine had the IP of

Now, it has a DHCP assigned value of

dig +short @ machine.corp.example.com:

dig +short @ machine

I'm sure this is samba4 replying, and the upstream forwarding nameserver actually returns the correct ( value for both. samba4 has clearly cached this somewhere.

The logs show nothing of interest, except for:
