Hello Team,

I configured open ldap 2.4.28 with samba version 3.6.25 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

And now window 7 to Windows 2008 R2 server I could able to join with open ldap.

When we try to join windows server 2012 R2 server it is not happening and error

I am facing is as follows, 

Error: /// The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service
location (SRV) resource record used to locate an Active Directory Domain
Controller (AD DC) for domain "opeldap.sdef.com":

The error was: "DNS name does not exist."
(error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR)

The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.opeldap.sdef.com

Common causes of this error include the following:

- The DNS SRV records required to locate a AD DC for the domain are not
registered in DNS. These records are registered with a DNS server automatically
when a AD DC is added to a domain. They are updated by the AD DC at set
intervals. This computer is configured to use DNS servers with the following IP


- One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child

. (the root zone)

Request you to inform whether can we join windows 2012 server to Open Ldap as

and if it is possible please share the procedure with us.

Thanks for your reply in advance.
