How to create a dns rule for my web page that will change the dns suffix.
Posted on 2008-09-30
I have a DNS network with a "veryverryverylong.local" domain name. This is fine for webmail because they only need their ad username. unfortunately for my web page my programmer needs the full name for user logon. users are stuck typing firstname.lastname@example.org. I was wondereing, is there a way I can configure DNS so that I can use email@example.com without changing the actual .local domain name? will i need to register this dns name for the logon to work outside of the lan? (i don't think so...., the active directory is 100% internal and works with the current .local domain name for logon) What about giving users alternate logon names for use with the website. All i know is I cannot change the domain name without killing the whole system and starting from scratch. (it's pretty complicated)
