Know anyone who is a Linux expert?  I have an issue joining Linux machines with host names longer than 15 characters to a 2012 r2 domain.  Works with Redhat 7.x, but it doesn’t work with SuSe 11 or 12.  I know it is not best practices to have names longer than 15 characters, especially since AD only displays the first 15, but these people don’t follow best practices…they are from down under!

This is from an former member of the old forum.  He's in a bit of a bind.

You could look into another authentication engine like Quest Authentication Services. Don't know for sure but they just might support that.

15 characters as per https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/909264/naming-conventions-in-active-directory-for-computers,-domains,-sites,-and-ous

Potentially with the MS Loves everyone a 2016DC may speak linux back...

Alternatively rename the machine https://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/ubuntu-change-hostname-command/ and use DNS cnames to point to the Linux machines.
They don't tend to complain as much as Windows boxes.
