That would be fine although if you can allow the format of the hostname to
be controllable that would be a bonus. I think allowing as much as possible
to be done at the time the machine account is created is best. It's pretty
labor intensive to have to log onto the Windows DC afterward and run
ADSIEdit in order to achieve the same result that was the default before the
code rewrite.
