I have a WIndows machine without a Forest or a Domain, just a name and a Workgroup.
When I perform a Linux Host command on its IP I get the following address:
# host 10.14.2.5
So the Linux DNS thinks that is his FQDN, but the Windows machine does not know about that name. He thinks his name is:
So now I want to add a Forest and a Domain to the machine, such that
its FQDN will be field.yyy.xxx.zzz.com
So I start by creating a Forest following these instructions:
I get as far as task 11 (Put in a FQDN for the Forest), I put in the desired name, as opposed to the name and workgroup:
I hit return and the system says the following:
The default NetBIOS Domain name "field0" was selected due to name conflicts on the network
So how do I get my desired FQDN on the machine ? I cant used just the name and the workgroup.
Should I try something like getting the field.yyy.xxx.zzz.com removed from the external DNS or something like that?
Or are there any other ways of handling this
