I have a local Windows domain called
oxford.stclares.ac.uk using MS integrated AD and DNS
machines FQDN's are automatically registerred in our dns as machine_name.oxford.stclares.ac.uk
we have an external DNS record setup with our ISP email.stclares.ac.uk which is forwarded to our external IP which is natted to our webmail server.
People on our Lan who wish to access this service allways resolves to our outside IP which will fail from local access so they need to type in email.oxford.stclares.ac.uk to get to the webmail services.
I need to register something in our DNS that our local DNS will resolve email.stclares.ac.uk to our local IP address.
Under forward lookup Zones We have oxford.stclares.ac.uk, Anything I register (new Host (A) or Alias (CName)) will have this as part of the fqdn i.e. email.stclares.ac.uk.oxford.stclares.ac.uk
Obviously not much use
There must be a way round this as I think think this is a common scenario. Do I need to create a New Zone or am I missing a trick here.
