Changing Forest Domain to point to external DNS servers, but keeping internal DC
Posted on 2011-02-15
Hey guys, initally setting up my server, I made the mistake of calling my forest tree my external domain (domain.com).. I have all the workstations setup to point to that DC, and have reconfigured all their settings, and setup emails..
Now I realized that the DNS points to the DC when we punch in the address on IE.. and this won't work because the website is hosted externally at another company..
What is the best thing to do for this situation? Is there anyway I can rename the forest, without having to re-configure the settings/re-adding all the workstations back to the domain?
Any help is appreciated.
