Hi Jakob, problems are, as far as I am aware, domain and search are 
different and my ISP thought it was a good idea to supply a router where 
you cannot change/set most of what you need for an AD domain, including 
the dns domain name. I am going to have to get a better router.

I know that I could just rip out the entire Ubuntu 22.04 dns stack and 
set it up manually, but I am trying to work with what Ubuntu supplies, 
if I can :-)

Thanks for the info
