Our Windows 2008 DNS Server is "domainname.local" (I didn't set up this box).
Our Xserve Jabber domain name is "jabber-server.sample.com" with the IP 10.10.50.5. iChat server requires a hostname -- you can't access it by IP address.
When I go to add an A Record on the 2008 server on domainname.local, it FQDNs as "jabber-server.sample.com.domainname.local."
On the Apple server, I can ping "jabber-server.sample.com" and it resolves correctly to 10.10.50.5.
On the Windows server, I can ping "jabber-server.sample.com" but it resolves to OpenDNS, our DNS provider.
We do have other Forward lookup zones on the Windows server, including "domainname.com" and "companyname.com."
Is there any way I can add this A Record on my 2008 server, or some other way to let the LAN know where to find "jabber-server.sample.com?"
