hi, I have a client with Windows 2003 AD network and their domain name is called domain.com
right now their mobile phones connect to Exchange server via A record pointer to a external FQDN name of Exchange server tha thappens to be something like mail.theirmaidomain.com
Please note that their AD domain name is different then their email\website domain name. So when phones ore on corporate Wifi they are trying to connect to external IP. I would lke to create a record in internal DNS server (located on Win2003 DC) so they go directly to internal IP. Something like mail.theirmaidomain.com pointing to internal IP instead of external IP.
Any time I create an A record or Cname it only allows me to create host.domain.com record - part of Fuly Qualified domain record. How do I go around it, similar to host file. Host file works only for one computer, I need to enforce this host record for all devices on the network.
