Dear Experts,

FQDN don't work with quickbooks, Quickbooks server been joined to the domain "domain.local", quickbooks server name set to quickbooks "Quickbooks database managment server".

from nslookup, I get replay for both quickbooks and quickbooks.domain.local. but from client when I connect to quickbooks server I can not change to "single user name".

I have added host recode under client C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\Etc\hosts" file, if i set it to below setting, user can change to single user mode:
quickbooks        10.x.x.x

BUT if i set it to FQDN can't, it will give error and advise to change to "host  multi user mode", this is where that client hold the file.
quickbooks.domain.local       10.x.x.x

is that correct?
