Domain naming

When setting up a domain for active directory with windows 2000 server, should you use a different name than your web site domain name or should you always try to use the same name?  Currently we have our dns name for the active directory xxx.com and our web-site named xxx.com could this cause issues?

Yes, absolutely. Make them different. It will cause dns problems when your external website www.xxx.com has both an external global ip address, as well as a local real ip address.

i can think (because we experience, and now live with this problem) that you should make both name different.

problem to makes DNS know the difference between LAN route and Internet Route... you know, when i try to ping a local area computer he tries to shoot me on NET because DNS say this address is public (and inverse is also true)
