vendor wants server name in forward lookup zone

I have windows 2003 server.  My vendor is requesting an entry in my forward lookup zone to write file to a folder.  If the folder is not shared and a local or domain user is created, would this allow writing to folder.  I am thinking the vendor is not giving me all the info they need ?

No, they are not.  Adding an entry into your Forward Lookup Zone will merely tell AD/DNS the IP to send that traffic to:

If you have a forward lookup zone entry called, "VendorApp", for example, pointing to, you will be able to resolve VendorApp with UNC, Ping, NSLOOKUP, etc.
