I have inherited administrative duties at my company. and I noticed that DNS is a mess.
so as im cleaning up, id like to set up subdomains for the varius utilities of internal web pages.
however I cannot get IIS to bind properly to a subdomain unless I use the FQDN. can anyone help me with this?
the situation looks a bit like this:
currently -- Host (A), dev-frontline, 10.10.10.101
Host (A), qac-frontline, 10.10.10.111
Host (A), frontline, 10.10.10.121
Id like to do something like this:
CName, dev.frontline, dev-web01.me.local
CName, qac.frontline, qac-web01.me.local
CName, frontline, prod-web01.me.local
when I set this up in DNS
nslookup to dev.frontline resolves to dev-web01.me.local
ping to dev.frontline resolves fine.
so I logon to the webserver and bind the url to the site I want in IIS.
and I get a 401 on dev.frontline
so I think ... will the fqdn work?
and after changing the binding, yes fqdn works fine.
but if im going to do this in production, I need have dev.frontline working without the me.local part.
anyone know what im missing?
thanks in advance!
