Host external dns, on internal dns server
Posted on 2007-04-06
A while back we were having a problem where our remote centers could not resolve the name etrack.teletrack.com If I connected to the dns server (windows 2003, Active Directory) it could not resolve the name either. I would then flush and register dns, stop/start netlogon and then stop/start dns. I could then resolve the name. They wanted me to try to host the teletrack.com domain internally, so I setup the teletrack.com zone in here, and added all the records I could find. The remote hosts can now do what they need to do, but if we try to email teletrack, or if they try to email us, it fails. We receive a "(000B09B6) Host unreachable" message. I've attempted to recreate their mx records, but I'm not all that experienced with this. I've added A records for www (126.96.36.199), mail (188.8.131.52), mail2 (184.108.40.206), mail3 (220.127.116.11) and mail4 (18.104.22.168), and also one for just teletrack.com (22.214.171.124). I've also added mx records for mail, mail2 mail3 and mail4. It is currently not working. Is this something that is possible, or should I just remove the zone, and have the remote locations deal with the first problem. I posted the IP's, as they are available on the net, but if they need to be removed, I will do so...
