here's he situation

lets say my companie's domain is www.domain.com

if you point your web browser there, it takes you to my companies web
page that is hosted outside of me by a web hosting company

a public dns server has www.domain.com pointed to that web hosts dns
server and then on the server that houses it

now, recently I have setup a win2k AD domain, and the domain name is
the same - domain.com

so, same domain name but two different IP's

I think that this is causing me a problem to where I cannot join
additional domain controllers

so, my problem is dual, one is how do I fix the dns problem? how can
i point public dns to my internal dns server and then forward web
requests out to my web host company?

would that be a fix?

All internal clients must point to the internal DNS server, including the
DCs.
Please post back with your unedited ipconfig /all and your AD domain name
from ADUC.

For your web site you need to add a host named www with the web site's IP
address, to the internal domain.com forward lookup zone.

This ipconfig looks good provided the primary DNS suffix matches your AD
domain name in ADUC.
If the name matches and dynamic updates are allowed you should be set to go.
As for your web site add a record named www with the IP address of the web
site to your forward lookup zone.

I have the same problem except my .com site is housed at
an outside isp. my .net site is housed in-house but my lan
domain is the same as the .dot com site. I am have tons of
enrties in the event logs that show the system trying to
contact the .com public DNS server instead of the local
DNS's so when I loose my internet connection my SQL server
say's I don't trust anyone and jumps off of the domain.

KOAS, If i find a fix I will pass it along but for now any
help from anyone would be appreciated.

Are all internal machines that belong to your AD domain only using your
internal DNS server in TCP/IP properties?
