Setting the DNS configuration parameter to join the domain on SuSE Linux

To successfully join a Active Directory domain on computers running SuSE Linux, you must set the mdns option to off in the /etc/host.conf file. If your /etc/host.conf file does not include the following line, you should add it to the file:

mdns off

This setting is required to enable proper DNS resolution, and therefore, must be set to successfully join the domain, and to allow users to log on properly.
