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?

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