My question is actually if I have to deal with the hosting
zones or not, because 'tecnopon.com.br' is hosted there, my guess,
giving Louis's answer and yours, is I don't need to.
As you will only be forwarding unknown requests (such as
www.google.com) to your hosting company, you do not have to
deal with their dns servers at all.
Also, I am currently using a DHCP Server to give static IPs
mac address, I guess I don't need to set the ip manually if I use
something like "method 3" described in  to prevent
updates, what do you think?
Never really understood using dhcp for fixed ipaddresses,
well possibly for one or two machines, but even then, what is
the point ?
I would give a fixed IP to all the machines that should have
one (servers, printers etc). Then for any other machines that
can and should have a dhcp IP (laptops etc), create a pool
based around the fixed machines. This way, you can tell, just
from the IP, just what the machine is likely to be.

When i look at that link, https://www.vultr.com/docs/stop-dhcp-from-changing-resolve-conf
Then only option 1 is the "real" correct one. Imho.
Option 2, and options 3 are masking a configuration errors.
If you want to use dhcp with servers, sure possible, no problem at all, but not recommended.
Now have a look at : /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf
That shows, something like this ( the default on debian )
option rfc3442-classless-static-routes code 121 = array of unsigned integer 8;
send host-name = gethostname();
request subnet-mask, broadcast-address, time-offset, routers,
domain-name, domain-name-servers, domain-search, host-name,
dhcp6.name-servers, dhcp6.domain-search, dhcp6.fqdn, dhcp6.sntp-servers,
netbios-name-servers, netbios-scope, interface-mtu,
DHCP Server requests. : ( involving your points. )
domain-name, domain-name-servers, domain-search
( ntp-servers and time-offset are also very important )
As long as the dhcp server sends the correct info here, you resolv.conf is always correct.
The search setting should be : ad.tecnopon.com.br
You need the domain-name so you have the correct zone for name server changes. (ad.tecnopon.com.br)
You need the domain-search so you can resolv hostname -s and hostname -f within the same domain. (ad.tecnopon.com.br)
If you also use resolvconf then add the needed options, for example if you have a proxy server with bind,
Then resolvconf is the best options, because you can add named_options and named_zones,
Which can be handy for the external zones. ( you can add a forward zone in bind for the internet zone.)
Should not be needed but also here, can be handy, this all depending on you setup.
But key here is, if you rebooted you server and your resolv.conf settings are wrong, then you have a setting in dhcp thats incorrect.
( or if resolvconf is installed, review /etc/network/interfaces ( missing dns-
Since you have ips assigned by mac, review that config.
Look in this file : cat /var/lib/dhcp/dhclient.eth0.leases
( if you interface is eth0, change to your interface name. )
And i agree with Rowland's suggestion to create pools, that makes is much better to handle these settings.
So i suggest, review you dhcp server settings and dhcp client settings.
That is, imo, the correct way to set this up. ( If you must use the dhcp server for the members. )
This wil also hold for the long run.
Thanks for the replies Rowland and Louis!
Giving all that was said here is a snippet of what I have in
Don't know why my interface is named enp2s0, but I only have one, this
might be a driver thing.
option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;
option routers 192.168.11.1;
option dhcp-lease-time 86400;
option dhcp-message-type 5;
option domain-name-servers 192.168.11.1;
option dhcp-server-identifier 192.168.11.1;
option domain-name "local";
renew 2 2017/09/12 15:28:36;
rebind 3 2017/09/13 01:09:09;
expire 3 2017/09/13 04:09:09;
This is the server that will be the AD DC, it currently is in client
subnet (192.168.11.x) for testing, but I will put it in server subnet
(192.168.13.x) when in production.
I can't change these settings now as it will break the whole network,
can I use the "method 3" from the link for now and manually edit
/etc/resolv.conf and then when it is ready for production I drop that
script and configure it properly into the DHCP Server?
Speaking of AD DC tutorial, I've read it over and over and especifically
the provisioning part, does this sound correct?
samba-tool domain provision --server-role=dc --use-rfc2307
--dns-backend=SAMBA_INTERNAL --realm=AD.TECNOPON.COM.BR --domain=AD
--adminpass=mypass --option="interfaces=lo enp2s0" --option="bind
interfaces only=yes" --option="dns forwarder=192.168.11.1"
If I understand correctly, domain is what will be NetBIOS Name, right?
What about Hostname? How do I set it in non-interactive mode?
It seems it isn't possible to set it also in interactive mode, as shown
in the example from the tutorial:
# samba-tool domain provision --use-rfc2307 --interactive
Realm [SAMDOM.EXAMPLE.COM]: SAMDOM.EXAMPLE.COM
Domain [SAMDOM]: SAMDOM
Server Role (dc, member, standalone) [dc]: dc
DNS backend (SAMBA_INTERNAL, BIND9_FLATFILE, BIND9_DLZ, NONE) [SAMBA_INTERNAL]: SAMBA_INTERNAL
DNS forwarder IP address (write 'none' to disable forwarding) [10.99.0.1]: 22.214.171.124
