I have two fresh windows 2003 servers setup each with its own line (IP), and firewall. I need to set these up so they have a Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN). How do i do this?
I will not be running DNS on either box, use a third party company with web panel for tDNS configuration (A, MX records etc).
SQL Server is installed on each box that i will be mirroring to each other so i need FQDN for access.
I named one PROD1 and the other SEC1. Do i need to forward its IP in our DNS manager to the computername.domainname.com? I own a few domains that i can use for each box, or i can use sub-domains (prod1.domainname.com to public IP xxx.xxx.xxx.xx1 and sec1.domainname.com to public ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xx2)
Sorry if i am graspoing, i am new to this and have a major $$ outlay to get this up and running of course in a short period of time.
