fully qualified hostname for DNS.
So I proped up a Virtual Machine - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS at work. I set it up with a bridged connection so it could get an IP address. SO i could ssh to it, startup a webserver you know fun stuff. A few days later one of the sysadmins came over asking how I got approved for a linux box. I showed him the virtual machine. He was not upset about the virtual machine - he said that the virtaul machine was freaking out the DNS server. DHCP gave it and ip address but the DNS server could not resolve it. He asked me to set the up the VM with a qualified hostname.
You know i set up apache servers on the VM - but when i want to access the index page, I enter in the address of the machine in the web browser, not the machines name. The machine name won't work when i enter it into the browser. I really don't know how to set up a qualified host name. I looked on google - really can't find a good explanation.
can you point me to a good tutorial?
