Device network hostname template

Determine the hostname of the device used in DHCP requests.

If this policy is set to a non empty string, that string will be used as the device hostname during DHCP request.

The string can contain variables ${ASSET_ID}, ${SERIAL_NUM}, ${MAC_ADDR}, ${MACHINE_NAME}, ${LOCATION} that would be replaced with values on the device before using as a hostname. Resulting substitution should be a valid hostname (per RFC 1035, section 3.1).

If this policy is not set, or the value after substitution is not a valid hostname, no hostname will be set in DHCP request.

Example value: chromebook-${ASSET_ID}

Supported on: At least Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 family
