Creating a DNS record for inranet IIS site

We are looking to create a new DNS record for intranet.mycompany.com. It should resolved to an ip address.

We already have a hostname of the actual server resolving to the hostname. What is the best way to do this?

We have another hostname already resolving to that IP address.

You can create a CNAME record with the name intranet.mycompany.com and point it to the existing host record for the server.

it doesn't look like that will work as the FQDN will be different

you have to create a forward lookup zone for mycompany.com. This will cause some issues because you will need to recreate all of your records from external dns for anything you have setup. You will also need to setup the records to point to internal ips for anything that is hosted internally

Thats the only way you will be able to do that unless you already are using mycompany.com as a forward lookup zone and your domain.

So prefix.mycompany.com is the name of your AD domain? If that's the case, your best bet will be to create a forward lookup zone named intranet.mycompany.com, then create a blank host (A) record inside it and give that record the IP address of the intranet site.
