Search Mx Records from Different Domain
Posted on 2011-09-17
Assumed I had trusted a new domain in my primary domain and called 'Hello' any mine 'WhoMe'. I have included Domain 'Hello' MX records into my DNS servers which is part of my range of Windows 2003 AD servers. I can see the new trusted domain in my Domain List at the client desktop. I can ping new domain IP addresses. Connection is OK.
But when I tried to ping the Server Name for example (188.8.131.52 =Teddy) it shows request timed out but no issue with ping the server IP. The solution provided by Microsoft is I need to ping the Server Name together with the Domain Name, e.g Teddy.Hello.com
I could see Teddy in my DNS servers but I can't understand why system can't resolve the Server Name from my DNS or even I have included 'Hello' Domain DNS IP in my DNS Servers range. Can't it accept Teddy instead Teddy.Hello.com?
The issue is my SQL script understand the server name as Teddy and not Teddy.Hello.com. So it would be a huge change in the SQL script and more if the system can't resolve the MX records.
Please help and thank you.
