Description doofdilla 2013-04-16 14:05:07 UTC
This is a mirror of the bug outlined here:


I thought it belongs here under "Tools" rather then "other".

Base system: Ubuntu 12.04.2
Samba: latest git version

Manage samba's DNS entries from a Windows 7 MMC:

Go to reverse zone: A few random containers appear (last part of listed reverse
IP addresses). Pressing F5 changes them to other random values (sometimes a few
reloads are required to trigger this behaviour).

Two screenshots showing this are attached.

Something similar happens in the forward zone: some of the a records are also
displayed as containers, however F5 does not seem to randomize this output
(this can also be seen in the screenshot - but it's not marked)

We have the exact same problem as outlined above.

System: Ubuntu 12.04
Samba Version 4.0.3 and 4.0.5
Bind Version 9.8.1-P1 (package) and 9.8.4-P2 (self compiled)

And all combinations of the the above versions

Windows 7 DNS MMC Version: 6.1.7601.17514

Additional Note: It also happened after we migrated to the samba internal dns

please don't duplicate bug reports intentionally. the component of the first bug report is fine and doesn't really matter.
