I'm not looking for actual tools or techical how to type answers here. I'm in a complex networking environment, and I'm trying to understand the constraints on my choice of a hostname / domain / DNS service for my host.
I'm running a debian system in an environment where most people run corporate windows boxes that are "managed" by it. There appear to be several domains around.
I would like to know what constraints should be informing my choice of which domain to particpate in, what hostname I can choose, etc?
Note, the DNS that is configured if I use DHCP is NOT accessible to me. However, I have access to a different DNS that I can add records to myself. If this matters . . .
