Internal DNS server for internal/external domain
Posted on 2009-12-22
I set up a DC/DNS for an internal domain, we'll call it mydomain.net. When the domain was set up, there was no need to worry about whether or not it was going to be an external domain. At this point however, it recently became an active external domain, so I'm having some trouble with external DNS entries when accessed from within the internal domain.
the address test1.mydomain.net is not registered to my DNS server, nor will it be because it is an external host. However, I need my internal machines to be able to access it, and they currently cannot.
I would really like to not have to rename my internal domain. There are a lot of internal resources that are already configured using the existing domain and changing it would be a massive pain.
Is there a way that I can automatically refer requests to subdomain.mydomain.net that do not exist as A records in my dns server to an external dns server? I'm using windows server 2003 and the associated DC/DNS/WINS servers.
