I'm working on moving a small business network away from a Windows Small Business Server. I've set up the active directory using Samba, and it all works well, but I see one potential problem: Currently we depend somewhat heavily on DHCP-based dynamic DNS, so that our workflow can look like this:
- Spin up a VM
- Change its hostname in the remote console
- SSH in with the hostname we just set
However, it seems like that would conflict with Samba's AD-based DDNS. Can we reconcile the two somehow? Our DNS backend for Samba is BIND9_DLZ, and the DHCP server we're moving to is isc_dhcp_server, although that is flexible.
