Looking around, it seems maybe I need to populate something like this into the named.conf?  But that file regenerates automatically.

allow-update {;};

I have the same issue on 6.0 - my question however is - how to get all records of the DHCP and DNS synced at the first place.

samba-tool dns query my.domain @ ALL

shows results that absolutely do not match the dhcpd.conf.

samba_dnsupdate --verbose --all-names

does nothing with dhcp client names... it only synces whats in /var/lib/samba/private/dns_update_list

 I can do that manually via samba-tool dns but it is very tedious even for few addresses.

Any ideas?
