How do I set DNS to resolve concatenated names between tusted domains ?

I have two separate Windows 2008 r2 domains with a tust between them that will only resolve names, between them, using the FQDN. There is an application running on several client pc's that accesses data on the other domain using the concatenated name ( example: wks  rather than wks.bouy.com ).
This application fails often. How can I set DNS to resolve the way the application expects? I can't alter the application behavior.

You need to add a stub zone or forwarding rules for the remote ad domain.
The other issue is that you need the other domain published as a search domain.
This way when you lookup somehost and your domain is mydomain and the remote is theirdomain
The lookup attempt will be for somehost.mydomain and failing that somehost.theirdomain.

I already have the other domain as a secondary zone, do I need a stub zone also ? How do I publish the other domain as a search domain ?

This search can be set as an option within DHCP server scope options.
You don't need the stub if you already have it as a secondary.

I will try that. How do I set the search for those with static address's ?

Hi,

Make a static entry within your DNS, Ip address x.x.x.x pointing to WKS

Roshan c 's suggestion lead me to add a reverse lookup zone then add the ip address/name of the other server to the forward lookup zone. It worked ! Thank you.

arnold I had tried the append suffix list in the tcp/ip settings of a couple of machines and it wasn't working. Thank you for the suggestion.
