I just set up a new Ubuntu 11.04 test VM which I hope in the future to use as a wiki for internal documentation.
My problem is that I cannot seem to reach it via hostname through a web browser (IP address works fine). The environment I am testing on is predominantly a Windows domain with Windows Server 2008 running our DNS and DHCP service. I would like to keep the address of this test box dynamic if possible and simply access it by hostname.
Is there something that I need to do in Ubuntu to have it get picked up by DNS (most googling suggests modifying dhclient.conf)? Or is this something that should be configured through Apache?
The Windows machines seem to configure to DNS automagically.
