  • Computer name and FQDN

    When using a server with a domain name suffix, I have always changed the computer name to reflect this. If I were given web3.contuso.com as an FQDN, I would change the computer name to WEB3. I know this is optional. Why would you not do it?

    The computer name is just that, the name of the computer, think NetBIOS name.

    The FQDN is the fully qualified domain name, in essence the entire computer name.

    No idea why you would not do it as it is something that i have always done as the DNS suffix, the part after the first period, is not the NetBIOS name.
