Basic name resolution will be trivial I guess.

But this "Active DNS" registration,
not to mention the Active Direcory/Kerberos integration.

I would suspect some requriments in the client here.
Maybe the deamons will handle this ?

Still I might be off base,
I rest my case and do some reading.

Old legacy OS :)
