Re: [Samba] Are secure DNS updates truly working?

Hi team,

I recently upgrade some servers from v4.3.5 (affected by
https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11520 ) to v4.5.8 (default in
Debian Stretch) and was expecting secure DNS updates to be working again,
but they are not.

My logs show the same issues reported on bug 11520:

[2017/08/29 15:21:01.990467,  2]
   Got a dns update request.
[2017/08/29 15:21:01.990841,  2]
   Update not allowed for unsigned packet.
[2017/08/29 15:21:02.001791,  1]
   Tkey handshake completed

DNS records are not updated by Win7 clients and a Wireshark capture shows
Samba returns "Refused" to the request (I'm using Samba internal DNS).
Setting "allow dns updates = nonsecure" works fine, as before.

Can anyone confirm that this was indeed fixed? What else could be the
reason for the failures?



    I can confirm they work on 4.6.7. I do recall they have worked for several prior versions as well. I can't seem to get PTR records to register though.

The refused request doesn't necessarily mean it's not working. Windows will send an un-secure request first, followed by a secure request if required.
