DNS name question

Feel a bit daft asking this question as I am not exactly a newb, but just need some clarity

We have a flat domain - domain.local with a normal FLZ

We have Sharepoint and need to add sharepoint.domain.local as we will be adding apps and the Sharepoint provider wants the CNAME

*.sharepoint.domain.local

When you create this on the flat domain it creates a sub folder under the flat domain and it doesn't resolve correctly

My thoughts were to create a new FLZ, but not convince this won't cause chaos....

Could somebody confirm the correct way of doing this....for my sanity!

Thanks

If you're going to create a new zone for sharepoint.domain.local, it will have to have its own DNS server(s) ,etc.  Are those elements present in the new zone?

No, it would just be in the existing DNS

I guess the easier question to ask is

I need to setup a CNAME record for *.sharepoint.domain.local pointing back to my existing sharepoint server - sharepoint.domain.local

Can I set this up within my existing flat domain?.....domain.local?  Reason being they need to be able resolve apps to this address which will point to the Sharepoint server



Thanks

There's no reason you can't have a "sharepoint.domain.local" zone, that contains a machine called - say - sharepointserver.  The IP address for sharepointserver.sharepoint.domain.local could be identical to the IP address for sharepointserver.domain.local.
