Would anyone have a working example of a LMHOSTS file. Also will I be
able to join a machine to the domain over the VPN tunnel using a LMHOSTS
file for Netbios lookups?


I have setup a working openvpn based vpn with routing (differents nets) and i m able to put hosts on domain over vpn since i setup a WINS Server. Just start the wins service on pdc and tell the hosts to use it and its working well.

But, i think you can just put something like :   PDCNAME   #PRE #DOM:DOMAIN-NAME   "DOMAIN-NAME    \0x1b"   #PRE

(from: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q180094 )

and it should be ok the for domain validation.
If you are using, dhcp, you can tell hosts who is the wins server so you dont need to edit lmhosts for all machines.

(Sorry for my bad english).
