I've installed ubuntu on my computer at work because I think it is a perfect system for work which I do but I got some issues. I can't resolve domains from windows DNS server. Basically, we have two servers, one is Windows server (DNS sever) and another one is ubuntu 12.04 (LAMP). So every time when I create new project I have to create new alias on DNS server for example project1.localdomain.local which points to ubuntu server. On ubuntu server I have to create the project in directory /var/www/project1/htdocs. Everything works for computers in local network with windows or for macs. So basically when I am trying open a link http://project1.localdomain.local in a browser it works. But when I do it on my computer with fresh ubuntu installation it doesn't. It looks like ubuntu can't resolve local domain where DNS server is.
So my network looks like that: 10.10.16.1 - DNS server - windows server domain - test
I've already tried resolved the problem adding lines to /etc/resolve.conf file
domain test nameserver 10.10.16.2
/etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf file I commented out line
/etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf I added lines
supersede domain-name "test"; prepend domain-name-servers 10.10.16.1, 10.10.16.2;
But it doesn't work.
On windows or mac I don't have to do any additional configuration to make it work.
