How to create remote host-name in DNS - Windows Server 2008
Posted on 2013-06-26
I'd like to create a host-name in DNS that resolves to a specific IP address in a remote network.
For example: \\company-data should resolve to 192.168.1.10 (where 192.168.1.10 is in a remote network)
Thus, when the user browse from their local W/S to "\\company-data", it will automatically open the "company-data" share from 192.168.1.10
Please note: The "\\company-data" share is in a remote network, thus not part of our local network or active directory.
Should I setup a new zone for this host-name in DNS?
As a test I added "company-data" to resolve to "192.168.1.10" in the Windows Host file on a single workstation and it works fine, but would prefer to add this in server DNS making it available to all workstations on the network.
