DNS Host (A) Record -- Different Record for Each Subnet
Posted on 2011-02-28
We have a centralized domain with a private IP scheme 172.16.X.Y -- X = location number, Y = individual address. This is across multiple locations. Our RF guns load a software that has the default location of the RF server as the word "RFSERVER." Obviously, I could make a Host (A) record to forward the word RFSERVER to the correct address for our main location's RF server - 172.16.1.Y.
My problem is we have multiple locations on one domain, with different subnets, but all pass DNS info back and forth through Active Directory. How do I make a Host (A) record to forward RFSERVER to 172.16.2.Y, and then another to forward to 172.16.3.Y, etc.? Is this even possible?
I don't want the RF guns at 172.16.2.Y sending RF info to RFSERVER if it forwards info to 172.16.1.Y (each location has it's own RF server). So, if our RF server's IP is 122 at all locations, it should load like this:
Location 1: 'RFSERVER' forwards to 172.16.1.122
Location 2: 'RFSERVER' forwards to 172.16.2.122
Location 3: 'RFSERVER' forwards to 172.16.3.122
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
