We have a MAC backup server with dual nic.  One nic connects to our cooperate LAN and another nic interface connects to a private LAN.  

I am a Windows Admin and new to MAC environment.  Can someone tell me in the MAC world, how do I make sure the backup server can resolve all server names on the network?  Do I need to setup an individual DNS server for mac?  Our mac device name has naming convention such as and I do not think our Windows dns can support a period within a server name.  

Once dns is setup, I think we can just go to each mac and specify the dns server address and that should be it, right?
