[Bug 1075] New: Host names should be more flexible / less generic
Summary: Host names should be more flexible / less generic
Up to now, skolelinux was considered to roll out in empty space. One of its
strenghts is being pre-configured to the max.
Nowardays more and more schools need to integrate existing infrastructure. Also
for security reasons, more flexible namings are desirable. I quote Arno Weber
from email@example.com (my translation):
"Checking the feasability of "Migration SuSE-Schulserver -> SKOLE", I miss a
simple possibility to configure our schools individual name.
This means e.g. (instead of):
LDAP Base DN: dc=grundschule,dc=irgendwo,dc=de
Regarding this, I'd like to ask, why those changes are not possible during
install process. ...
Especially with extern mail traffic, the current solution of skolelinux is very
unsatisfying. Changing names needs many steps of adaption and might get lost
after update. Also from security aspects, generic names are a real problem."
