DNS issue - Windows 2008
Posted on 2012-03-15
I have a email server which is situated inside the network.
Outside the network, there is a DNS records mail.example.co.uk which points to the external ip address which is routed to the internal server. Let's say 184.108.40.206 is the DNS and the server sits on the network internally at 192.168.30.30
When inside the network, I need the DNS given to users to resolve to 192.168.30.30 instead.
On my Windows 2008 server, I created a zone for example.co.uk. and entered the record for mail.example.co.uk pointing to 192.168.30.30.
that works fine, but now users cannot access anything else at the domain example.co.uk.
I asssu,e the client machine questions the DNS server internally, and this cannot resolve as it does not hold the records.
Is there a way I can tell the Windows 2008 DNS server where the mail.example.co.uk server is internally, and then tell it to look outside for any other queries fro the example.co.uk. domian. Or is there another confederation?
