Alternate UPN Suffix is already setup

Domain is (FQDN) .....          my.domain.com
Alternate UPN Suffix is ...... domain.com

By default when setting up an A record it uses the FQDN
But I want the alternate domain suffix

Help :)

You have to create the record in whatever zone has the right "suffix" (as you call it).  If want a record for "web.domain.com", then create the A record in the "domain.com" zone, not in the "my.domain.com" zone.

Hi Footech,

The primary domain is...    my.domain.com
It has a zone ...in... Forward Lookup Zones (DNS)

domain.com is an Alternate UPN Suffix (microsoft term not mine) for my.domain.com
Not a sub domain or a domain, it is a UPN Sufffix....basically a kindof alias
If unclear .... look in...Active Directory Domain and Trusts, right-click on the topmost level > properties > here you can add upn suffixes

Hope this helps clarify :)

Maybe a zone needs to created for it...but I see no choice for a upn suffix in the zone wizard

I know what a UPN suffix is.  :)  But the terminology varies a bit when we're talking about DNS.  They're not exactly related, as you can have one without the other.
In any case, yes you would have to create a "domain.com" zone in order to create records in it.  The zone type would be primary (I'd make it AD-integrated).
If you have the same domain with public DNS records, then additional consideration needs to be given as to how this would affect users on your internal network.

What exactly is the purpose you need this A record for? What are you trying to accomplish with the DNS record and the UPN suffix?
