Hello and thank you for your time and expertise.



2008r2 server running DNS. Internally we have  system on 10.10.10.80.
I need to create DNS entry so that whenevery someone locally goes to abc.acmyproducts.org it resolves to 10.10.10.80.

The problem is that when 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
Also when i added the abc.acmyproducts.org A record a new ORG folder was created in my DNS directory...  

I need to make it so that when i ping abc.acmyproducts.org locally it replies back with 10.10.10.80.

I was informed that I need to create a separate DNS zone for acmyproducts.org.  Otherwise the domain suffix .local will be added to any A record you create.

I attempted to do so but i'm not sure how to proceed w/ new Zone Wizard. We already have a local.domain. Do i need to create a new secondary zone or a stub zone. I know for certain it won't be primary zone since we already have a primary zone as i said before.

How do i proceed w/ new zone creation for abc.acmyproducts.org so that when i ping abc.acmyproducts.org it comes back w/ local IP 10.10.10.80 and not webhost server IP.

Thank you ahead of time.
