Folder Domain Found Under Domain When Adding 'A' Host Record.
Posted on 2001-08-06
I'm having an issue entering an A record to my DNS server. Now the DNS server IS working and resolving names but this one little issue has me wondering what its doing.
Lets call this domain DOMAIN.COM
In the DOMAIN.COM folder in NT4 DNS Manager I click NEW RECORD and enter a new 'A' record for the name of this DNS server. We will call it NS.
Now when I go back to DNS manager and look at the 'A' record inside DOMAIN.COM I do notice it in there, BUT -- I also notice a FOLDER under the DOMAIN.COM. It looks like it made a sub-domain under DOMAIN.COM called NS.
On this DNS Server called NS, I have the following configuration set. On TCP/IP Properties on the DNS TAB I have:
HOST NAME: NS
DOMAIN SUFFIX SEARCH ORDER: DOMAIN.COM
If I delete the FOLDER NS, then the name record for NS inside DOMAIN.COM also disappears. I re-enter the 'A' record again for NS and the folder returns. However I did add an 'A' record inside DOMAIN.COM for my secondary DNS server of NS2 and that did not make a directory, it worked fine.
Perhaps I'm doing something wrong or over looking something else.
