With Samba4 and Active Directory the hostname of the server is read
during provision, to set the netbios name. It's even asked to set
/etc/hostname and /etc/hosts in respect with the chosen domain/realm names.
I've seen that on real windows AD that it's possible to change the
hostname of the domain controller with netdom command, but is there a
way to do so on Samba4 ?
The netbios name seems to be referenced in several locations :
* in smb.conf
* in the ldb :
o msSFU30MasterServerName in some entries located in
o user's profilePath
o it's own domain controller entry located in
o it's RID entry : CN=RID Set,CN=$NETBIOS,OU=Domain Controllers,DC=...
o fSMORoleOwner in CN=RID Manager$,CN=System,DC=... and in
o the user dns-$NETBIOS
o fSMORoleOwner msDs-masteredBy msDS-IsDomainFor masteredBy in
Any clue to update the server's hostname ?
