You mean,, I have to have on all machines default-domain_suffix = c.example.org
I am not sure that I understand the "qualify the primary domain IIRC" del...
What I meant is if you had the main domain called example.com
and set the suffix to c.example.com
retrieving users from the main domain would require appending the domain
getent passwd administrator(a)example.com
But subdomain users could be un-qualified
getent passwd some_user_from_subdomain
Also, I wonder if using the fully qualified name, or the netbios name is
really a problem? After all, that's how it's done in Windows..
If client machines and servers were in c.example.org
natively, user left in subdomains
-would it help?
Not sure I understand, but if all users are in subdomains, then using
default_domain_suffix makes sense.
