ok long story short but we are moving to a new AD domain and completely new DNS services.

New machines not in ZCM cannot register during first login.

I see in the logs that the client is trying to find the server via only the short host name. I can manually register, since eventually the client will get the ip. Our network admins are setting up the new DNS to only accept fully qualified names.

I assume somewhere on the zcm server there is a setting to change to the fully qualified, and thus it will build a new client that uses it as well????
