Changing Domain Suffix from .local
Posted on 2008-10-15
Hi - I need our Apple iPhones to be able to access our Sharepoint server via the VPN - I can get everything connected however the iPhone will not resolve internal DNS names.
After playing for weeks and scouring the web I have found that teh apple software has an exception for domains that end in .local as this is used by the Bonjour Service. Great !
So has anyone got past this yet without renaming the domain from .local to .somethingelse ?
If I have to rename, Can I use the 2003 Domain Rename tool to change my SBS domain name suffix without problem ?
I have one server running SBS and exchange and another server running SQL Server Standard Edition - only 6 client computers connected so not a real major job to change things however I dont fancy setting up my exchange again from scratch.
I use a cisco ASA5505 to manage the VPN connections.
All help would be greatly appreciated - I hope there is a hack solution out there to fix this rather than domain name changing etc.
