Equivalant of DNS Views for Windows 2000 or 2003
Posted on 2006-06-30
I am looking for an equivalant of the BIND 9 feature called "DNS Views", that is compatible with Windows 2000 and/or 2003.
Here is the motivation:
I have network A 172.24.0.0/24 and network B. 172.24.1.0/24
Server 1 (bigserver.company.org) has dual gigabit network cards connected to network A and B respectively, let's say it is 172.24.0.10/24 and 172.24.1.10/24
network A and B are connected with a low-speed (10M) router, and packets can go from any comp on net a to any on net b...
Now then; if I assign dual IP addresses to the domain bigserver.company.org, as I understand it, the Windows 2003 server will alternate between the two when responding to client requests... Of course, this is a problem when a client on network A resolves bigserver to be 172.24.1.10 - the data goes across the low-speed link.
Using DNS Views under BIND, this is easily solved; you simply resolve all requests for bigserver from network A 172.24.0.0/24 to 172.24.0.10, and from network B 172.24.0.0/24 to 172.24.1.10.
Is this possible to do with Windows 2000 or 2003?
Is it possible to run BIND alongside (i.e. on the same machine) Windows 2003 DNS on a Domain Controller?
lmhosts is not an option; I am looking for something compatible with DHCP - i.e. no client configuration.
Will increase points to 300 for a viable solution to the above. ("Not possible" answers will recieve the 50)
