Upon join s3.5.x sometime register correct fqdn as the value of the attribute dnsHostName.
Sometimes it don't and just put the short netbios name.
Is it fixed?
If not, I think it should be done for a 4.0 release
Is this a duplicate of bug #7466 ?
Also, is this a bug in the 3.5 client tool (in which case it can't block the 4.0 release) or is it a bug in samba 4.0.0rcX ?
No it was not.
From what I see in my latest tests is that samba does try to register the correct fullname.
It might be still a bug in 3.5 I need to recheck
Cross-checked with samba 4.0r3 FS it tries to use the correct fqdn.
I'll recheck with S3.5, hence removing the blocker for 4.0
i have't seen this bug in any recent samba version. check hostname and hostname -f also cause this matters for the dns name registration.
