Forget about the internal host name.
Just setup everything to use the external host name, both internally and externally. Ensure that the split DNS has the relevant hosts pointing to the internal host names.

Could you be more specific?

are you following a particular migration guide?

Have you setup 2 external IPs & external FQDNs, one for each server or are you trying to do the whole thing on a single IP/FQDN?
