Data viewing computernames belonging in the domain

I was born yesterday in Unixville (i.e. I know very little... have had a very introductory course). We are using Sun OS 5.8. I want to simply look at a list of the computernames of all the computers that are a part of the domain that I belong to. For a Windows machine to see the domain, does it HAVE to be assigned a computer name that is already registered in the UNIX server?

You could run nslookup and then do a ls for your domainname:

nslookup <enter>
ls yourdimainname <enter>

This should list all the hostnames/ip numbers for machines that are listed on your local dns server.

That's okay, us newbies should help each other out whenever possible.
I've only been using Linux for about a 18 months.
