I am pinging a network device with the syntax:
UBUNTU>> ping myHost
Ubuntu is able to resolve the hostname (myHost) to the correct LAN IP (192.168.XX.YY), whereas Win-10 is unable to do this unless a period is appended to myHost:
"Ping request could not find host myHost"
1) Is it unreasonable to expect myHost (sans period) to resolve on Win-10?
2) Why does Win-10 require the period appended to myHost? Why is the period required on Win-10?
