Bug Description

After registering a bunch of systems into cobbler, dnsmasq gives out the correct IP, however, the hostname is not resolvable by its FQDN, only its hostname.

adding a parameter such as:


to /etc/cobbler/dnsmasq.template fixes this

Dunno if this is expected behavior or if there should be a debconf question for this, as ensemble relies on a resolvable system name (from the cobbler point of view)


Additionally, cobbler should probably include in the dnsmasq.template a field for the domain, but should be commented by default.

  * Fix late_command to import client keys (LP: #837541):
    - orchestra/utils/keys.py.
    - provisioning-server: modify orchestra_rsyslog_client_config snippet;
      add orchestra_rsyslog_obtain_keys.
    - ensemble.preseed: use orchestra_rsyslog_obtain_keys snippet;
      additionally, set password for default user.
  * orchestra/utils/keys.py: Encode late command not template.
  * Set the default GW if DNS/DHCP is managed by orchestra (LP: #838243):
    - debian/ubuntu-orchestra-provisioning-server.postinst: Handle the GW
      configuration. Ask debconf question only after DHCP/DNS question is
    - debian/ubuntu-orchestra-provisioning-server.templates: Add debconf
  * Set the domain name for DHCP when managed by orchestra (LP: #834172):
    - debian/ubuntu-orchestra-provisioning-server.postinst: Add logic to
      set/unset hostname.
    - debian/ubuntu-orchestra-provisioning-server.templates: Add
      dnsmasq-domain-name template.
