How to prevent dynamic DNS updates during "net ads join"

This document (7023944) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12


Linux machines are being added to a AD domain.  As a result, entries are being dynamically added to the configured DNS server.  It is desired that this be avoided.


Add the option "--no-dns-updates" to the "net ads join" command.
