Quick question to those more knowledgable :
when installing and setting up Windows Server 2008, it asks for the domain name you want to use. It will not let me use just the one word (e.g. mydomain). It insists on a FQDN, e.g. domain.suffix
I don't remember that in Server 2003 - maybe it's changed ?
Anyway, when I want to attach some PCs to the new domain, should I be using just "domain" on the PC, or should it be "domain.suffix" ?
Obviously I'm having problems getting a PC to attach to the domain. I can't find an answer to this question anywhere. Yet :-)
Maybe this is a red herring, but I need to move on from this point.
