DNS Add company external zone to internal server
Posted on 2015-02-20
We have AD integrated DNS. We are in the middle of moving our data center. Our external domain is company.com. Our internal domain is company.local. My manager wants me to add a zone in our internal DNS for company.com.
They want to add static A records and aliases where they IP changes as the data center migration progresses. The trouble with that is the outside names will not resolve inside. I have root hint servers and forwarders in DNS.
I was told to add conditional forwarders for the zone. When I add the zone first and then try to add conditional forwarders I get "Cant add forwarders - Zone already exists" When I add the forwarders first I can't add the zone.
I'm obviously not a DNS expert so I would really appreciate all the help I can get.
