I've got iPhone users vpn'ing into my network.  The DNS doesn't work right for local servers.  I read on the net that a solution is to add ".local" entries for server names.  I'm assuming this would end up being like server1.local if you're trying to get to server1 ?  My problem is that I'm not sure how to implement this in AD, I'm a bit new to this...thanks.

you would need to change your whole domain name for this change..

Not an easy task, see below:

I'd be looking elsewhere for a solution, as that advice appears limited..

You could make an DNS alias, which should resolve to another name..

I found the issue with this...I had mistyped the DNS server ip address in the advanced properties in the VPN settings.  Changed it to the correct address and everything is working fine... :S  I'm able to resolve DSN names via VPN just fine now....
