Greetings,

I have a custom dyndns account with multiple A record for accessing multiple (dynamic IP) remote offices.

At my main office, I have a windows 2008 server with dns server.

I need to create a new zone using the domain name registred with dyndns. Lets call it domain.COM

My issue is that I can't access anymore every host registred with custom dyndns since the zone exist in my windows 2008 dns server. (domain.COM)

How could I configure my windows 2008 server to find every A record in my custom dyndns account ?

Thank you

to refine my question... I have mutliple host created on my dyndns custom account.

Those host are using the same domain name that I want to create in my windows 2008 server.

Internally, I can't access to host when I create my new zone using the same domain name.

How can I resolve this ?

Is there a way to import all dyndns record to my Windows 2008 dns ? Keep in mind that 90% of those record are dynamic IP address.

Thanks

As of March 2008 you can't pull the records from DynDNS into your own DNS server.

So, I don't think that you can do it. Why do you want to create the same DNS zone internally? If you are creating a new AD domain, Microsoft recommends that you use domain.local precisely to prevent problems between internal and external namespaces.

If you wanted to so some scripting, you could have a script that queried all of the records at DynDNS and then input them into your internal DNS server.

My current AD domain is effectively domain.local
