The ONLY way we can get it to register upon domain join is:

/etc/hosts fqdn hostname localhost

Lose the IP_OF_THIS_SERVER for the join. 

And /etc/hostname

1. net ads leave -UAdministrator
2. remove the A record on the DC
3. net ads join -UAdministrator

Nothing else works on Ubuntu. YMMV on deb.
