Win2k3 DNS resolution issue

Helllo All,

I am having an issue resolving external sub domain names. I have internal servers that wanted easliy resolved internally and externally. ex. terminal1.domain.com So I have a forward lookup zone called domain.com. I have this issue where my website is domain.com and we created a external subdomain called shop.domain.com. It is currently hosted on a service that isn't a static ip. I currently can't resolve it internally if I create a cname to shop.shopify.com. I have to assign it a static ip to make it resolve. What other options do I have to get this to work. I don't believe my ip static with shopify and I don't want management to one day tell me the shop.domain.com is down.

Are you wanting shop.domain.com to be accessible from the outside, inside or both?

Try to use a dynamic dns system (no-ip for example) and add cname pointing to dynamic name

When I tried to point the cname of domain.myshopify.com to shop.domain.com it doesn't resolve the domain.myshopify.com. I have already changed the cname record in my network solutions account to shop.domain.com and it works flawlessly outside the AD Domain but internally it goes to a search results. When I internally go directly to domain.myshopify.com or shop.cipriani.com the both go to search results that don't resolve the domain. In AD DNS I assigned the current IP address to shop.domain.com and it works but I am told the ip changes so I really want the cname to work.

Are you putting a . at the end of the FQDN for the target host?

This works great for me...  both in a .local primary zone and a .com primary zone.  These are both zones administered in Windows Server 2008.  See the attachment. DNS.tiff
