I have two servers, one used for Primary and one used as secondary (failover) in two locations.
I need a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) setup on both machines to allow some software to interact (sql server mirroring etc).
I am a domain/DNS etc newbie so please bear with me. We own one domain name (www.xxx.com) and i would like to have server1 have the domain primary.xxx.com and the other have secondary.xxx.com (or something like that.
How can i go setting this up? Do i have to install a dns server in both servers? Or is a dns server even needed.
Thanks for any help or advice.
I can also split this up to seperate questions for more points if you all think it is needed.
