DNS Issues over a VPN
Posted on 2009-04-23
I have this strange issue that I just cannot solve.
I have a standard Win2k3 R2 DC which also acts as a VPN server.
I can vpn to the network fine and ping all machines by thier short name, e.g. workstation-1
I can also ping all machines by their FQDN, e.g, workstation-1.gmtd.golds.co.uk
I make use of ILO on my HP servers, so would like to associate a domain name with an ip address that I assign to the ILO on each server.
So I have created A records in the Forward Lookup Zones that point to the ip addresses of the ILO devices. I have also created PTR records in the Reverse Lookup Zones for both just the machine name and the FQDN.
The problem is that I would like to be able to access my ILO interfaces by just typing the short machine name, but I can only access them if I put the FQDN address in.
What can I do to solve this?
