Good afternoon

First of thank you for your time and input put on this.


2008 r2 Server, has DNS and DC roles. On the network we also have a MAC server IP: 10.10.10.80:8443 (port 8443 is directed to management console on the system)

I need to create an internal DNS record which would point to this server on port 8443.

Essentially when user on the same network opens a browser and types  http://test.acmeproducts.org it should resolve to 10.10.10.80:8443

Any and all input is appreciated.

Thank you..

DNS records point to hosts and IP addresses, not ports
you would either have to manually put that port in the browser or have a redirect to that port on the web server port 80 to go to 8443

I created an a record for abc.acmyproducts.org to 10.10.10.80   When i try to ping abc.acmyproducts.org it replies back with ip from web host server. However when I ping abc.acmyproducts.org.FQDN.local it replies back w/ 10.10.10.80  how can i make it so that when i ping abc.acmyproducts.org locally it replies back with 10.10.10.80.

Is this possible and how can i do this.

PS. When i added the abc.acmyproducts.org A record a new ORG folder was created in my DNS directory...

You have to create a separate DNS zone for acmyproducts.org.  Otherwise the domain suffix .local will be added to any A record you create.
