Question

How do I specify a domain for my machine in Windows?

Answer

To enter a domain to be used by TCP/IP in Windows you need to:

Right-click on the my computer (This PC, on windows 8) icon
->properties
(you may need to select ‘Advanced system protection’ and then proceed with the following…
->computer name
->change
->more
->Primary DNS suffix of this computer

Enter the Internet domain name of this machine, do not include the hostname portion of the domain name. For example, for Gordano, our domain name is "gordano.com" (NOT
"mail.gordano.com").

You should reboot your server after making this change.
