Server 2003 Domain name does not have a suffix at all there is no ".com, .local, .anything".
Posted on 2008-10-10
I have taken on a new server 2003 network, this network does not have a proper fully qualified domain name, it is only "servername.domainname." there is no suffix at the end! I am unsure if this can be repaired with a DNS adjustment, but I am trying to avoid changing the domain name and then re adding all the workstations back on the network, and dealing with permissions on all folders this would be a lot of work....
This is a Server 2003 domain controller with DNS in a 2003 native environment, there is no exchange server, no secondary DNS, no secondary DC, no WINS, and DHCP is on our firewall, this network is somewhat small but would take a long time to do this the difficult way.
How do I fix my domain name with no suffix to have a fully qualified domainname.com without additional problems?
Thanks in advance for the assistance.
