I have a Hyper-V Linx Ubuntu 20.04 VM
I’m trying to ping a windows box in my domain via it’s HOSTHAME.
I’ve followed some threads with this suggested fix:
sudo apt-get install libnss-winbind
I then updated /etc/nsswitch.conf to contain the following line:
hosts: files dns wins
Now when I attempt to ping the windows machine by HOSTNAME, I get the following error:
ping SOMESERVER ping:SOMESERVER: Name or Service not found
What do I need to do in order to get this to work?
Are there additional configuration changes that I need to make?
