When i do an nslookup, it defaults to the AD domain  I have another standard primary zone called, which is what i want all my hosts to use.  The was created before i got here and is the root domain.  What i would like is that any client that does an nslookup, it will default to, not  Both domain controllers as well as clients that are added to the domain are appeneded with the dns suffix.  I think I will have to build a new prestine forest in AD for, do a trust between and and migrate over,,, back to the main question,, is there anyway to change the default for when a client does nslookup?

when you  rebuild, you need to have a .local extension rather than .com for internal
