First off, I did not set up our win2k3 domain and have very little knowledge of Domain Controllers or DNS Administration.
Internally we have a domain configured with a name like "example.com". However, externally we also have a website with a domain name "www.example.com
". In addition, externally on the same ip as "www.example.com
" we had a website "www.example2.com
We have since changed the external website "www.example.com
" so that it has it's own ip address however internally within OUR local domain("example.com") only, "www.example.com
" is still resolving to the same external ip address as "www.example2.com
Dnsstuff.com resolves our www domain to the proper ip address. When I do an "ipconfig /all" it shows my DNS servers as
When I manually assign the DNS server of 188.8.131.52 to my network interface, instead of the option to automatically obtain, then www.example.com
resolves properly. So I figure this means that internally, the dns is not resolving properly and that our external ISP provided dns server is working properly.
I would like to know how I can fix our DNS or DC to allow all computers in the local domain to resolve www.example.com
to the proper address. As I am not terribly familiar with DNS, I attempted to create a "New Host(A)" record within the local "example.com" domain record however when trying to bind it to an external address, I was given an error that there was no corresponding reverse lookup zone.
I'm not confident I'm going about this right.
Can anyone give me any pointers as to how I can get all the domain computers to resolve the external domain to the proper ip address?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
