My first step was to disable the etc/hosts file because it was disabling the dhpc console (the dhcp console was trying to open private.<hostname> instead of the FQN name). I somehow suspect this might cause the dns updates to fail on the clients.

    - is there any simple way to get the dns updates to work?
