Internal DNS records help

Last Modified: 2015-03-17
We have an external DNS domain called tester.org..so our external website is tester.org

We have our internal active directory domain called ad.tester.org

Some developed an internal intranet site called inside.tester.org and so to access the site it's inside.tester.org/tester. They asked us to put this in our internal Active Directory DNS.

So I'm attempting to enter a new 'A Record' or should it be a 'CName' record to point to inside.tester.org/tester ,but when I enter it comes up as inside.ad.tester.org automatically giving it the parents domain.

How can I create a record in my DNS that will allow the users to get to inside.tester.org/tester? Also eventually I'll need to add this to group policy, so the users won't need to type it in and I can make the intranet site their home page
