[Samba] samba 4 dns-update issue

Hi all,

I've setup samba4 according to the samba4 wiki on centOS 5.4 in KVM.
This went without any problems. I only had to install a higher version of
bind to 9.6.x because Centos bind in repo will install version 9.3.x.
I've used the Fedora12 source rpms for this to build bind 9.6.x on Centos
5.4.

Then I configured bind according to the samba wiki
(http://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Samba4/DNS)

I did all the check in the wiki to see if bind is working. All tests passed.
But in my logs a got the messages "The working directory is not writable".
I changed the owner on /var/named to the group named, which solved that
problem.

Then i installed Win7 virtual in KVM and joined the domain. I can login,
create users via dsa.msc tool on windows and see them in wbinfo -u on the
samba4 domain controller. All looks right, except for my ddns. The zone
could not be updated with the new win7 machine. The win7 machine has a
fixed ip-address.

I checked all the howto again and again, but couldn't find a thing which
could cause this. The error I see in my log is:

Aug 11 09:34:46 sambaserver named[2281]: client 192.168.122.150#60058:
query 'roland.quinox.be/SOA/IN' denied

Is this a permission problem? I check and the group 'named' has write
access to my zone file. (the user 'named' is member of the group 'named')

This is the only issue I have with my samba4 installation and I really
want to solve this issue.

If you need more information or configurations, i can post them.

Kind regards,

Roland
