Trouble with zone transfer + question about redirecting web request through DNS
Posted on 2011-05-11
.I'm working on a Server 2003 machine that is the DC for our domain. It provides internal DNS for our various VLANs, DHCP and AD functions.
We recently added a new member server(smrp01) that functions as a report and web server. Users access it through its internal address(192.168.xxx). I recently added a public ip that points to smrp01's web server for public access, which works as expected.
Users in our lan can hit it internally(192.168.xxx) but not through the public address or domain name(report.blahblah.com), which is expected. I'm trying to create an entry in the DC's DNS that will resolve the public URL to the internal address when users type 'report.blahblah.com' into a browser .
'Report.blahblah.com' DNS is setup through GoDaddy. I've attempted to set up this domain as a stub zone in my DC's forward lookup zones, then creat a new host and resolve it to the address I want. I believe I'm following the right steps: add it by name, point it to the correct external DNS server(s) and hit 'go'. It never loads, I get the 'Zone not loaded by DNS server' error and the DNS viewer shows Event ID 6522 but nothing ever happens.
Am I going about adding the domain as a stub zone correctly? And is this the preferred method to accomplish what I want?
