Question regarding adding a DNS zone and manually entering a PTR record for a key File Server.
I just joined our 2 offices (PA Office where I work & NY Office) via a VPN tunnel using our SonicWalls. Both locations have completely separate networks, but we can now see each other servers by IP only. Were are running Windows 2008 R2 Domain Controllers and File Servers.
I would like PA's staff to be able to "see" NY's File Server by host name versus IP, so I would like to add a PTR record for this server. However, PA & NY's domain is different, so I'm thinking I can add a DNS zone in PA (non Active Directory integrated I would assume) for the NY domain for the purpose of adding a PTR record like:
NY-FS1.NY-domain.com = 192.168.50.200
Later, I am planning on setting up a trust between the domains, but I am not ready to do this yet. So I was looking to solve this problem as soon as possible. However I'm nervous about the implications of adding a DNS zone without knowing the implications.
