You shouldn't have to do anything special with your dns server. DynDns only relates to computers OUTSIDE your network connecting to your server from the internet. Dyndns.org will automatically resolve your account name (e.g. yourname.dyndns.org) to your server's IP address (e.g. Your internal network's dns settings are irrelevant.

You will want to install the dyndns updater service on your poweredge server, though, so that it updates dyndns.org with changes to your IP address.

You might also check your router to see if it supports Dynamic DNS services such as DynDNS. If so then you can configure your account settings on the router and have it poll against DynDNS instead of installing the client on your server.

Frosty is right though. You should not need to change any of your internal DNS settings.
