On my private local network, I need an Ubuntu host to convince itself (well, more specifically the Erlang "long name" tool) that it has a FQDN. It doesn't much matter what it is. But supposing my real host name is
apps-dev-01 I'd like
hostname -f to return, say,
I'm assuming that some combination of
/etc/resolv.conf manipulation will get me there, but I can't figure out what it is exactly. What is the right way here?
Note, I don't run a DNS server internally, and given how small my network is, I'd rather not take on that hassle.
