Hi,

We have a customer with a problem to configure domainname on a Microsoft DNS Server
example: com1.co.uk

This doesn't work... the system went nuts when we tried to configure a domain like mentioned in the example.
Is there a way to do this on Windows Server & DNS?

In dnsmgmt.msc, right-click on 'Forward lookup zones' and choose new zone and go through the wizard.

What error do you get?

when trying to create a folder: com1.co.uk in inetpub-folder, he tells me there is already a folder with this name, however, we can't find this folder.

Sounds like folder is hidden.
Tools -> Options -> View -> Show hidden files and folders

Weird.
Try to name the folder something else like com1_co_uk instead of the dotted folder name.
