Windows servers pass to a DHCP server their hostname which can be used
to register them dynamically with DNS. By default, linux dhcp clients
don't do this. For example, with "dhcpcd" you need to pass it the "-h
hostname" parameter to get it to register with dynamic DNS services
associated with windows DHCP or ISC's dhcpd.
