NethServer Version: NethServer release 7.3.1611
Module: Active Directory
I'm still trying to understand how best to set this up for our office. Here's the scoop:
- Internally we run on Zentyal an existing PDC domain called xyz
- I want to use nethserver to create a new PDC domain called xyz1
- I've installed nethserver with a hostname like follows: mainserver.xyz.ca when I then go to install/setup AD on nethserver, the domain name that is chosen for me is xyz. I can't change it.
- So I begin anew and setup a new nethserver and this time I use a hostname like follows: mainserver.xyz1.xyz.ca. Now when I got to setup my PDC domain on nethserver the domain name that is chosen for me is xyz1. Great!
Ok...but I don't want my hostname to be named mainserver.xyz1.xyz.ca. I want to keep it to be mainserver.xyz.ca and be able to choose the name of my domain when setting it up.
I know in Zentyal and ClearOS I had the ability to call my domain whatever I wanted. How can I do this now in nethserver? Perhaps the @dev_team has a reason why the domain name is not something we can choose for ourselves?
Is there a reason why nethserver picks the name of the domain for me without allowing me to choose?
