After updating to iOS 4.3 our users are unable to access internal addresses solely by the machine name. FYI our TLD is companyname.local.
For example, they were once able to browse to http://sharepoint
but now have to use the FQDN to access the site (http://sharepoint.companyname.local
) This is true for any resource on our internal network.
I did a couple packet captures on our DNS server (Windows Server 2003 R2) and found that any iPad on iOS 4.3 is dropping the domain suffix companyname.local. iPads running iOS 4.2 query the DNS server correctly as it comes across as sharepoint.companyname.loc
Is there a way that I can rewrite these DNS requests for "sharepoint" to be "sharepoint.companyname.lo
cal"? This traffic never hits our firewall so I'm unable to do any type of DNS doctoring.
