Split DNS resolution


B

Brian

I'm looking for a way to provide DNS for some internal addresses for a
domain without the DNS server being authoratitve for the entire domain.
Here's a scenario....

Internal Win 2003 DNS server servicing domain.com & others

I need it to resolve internal NATed addresses for a few hosts.

hosta.domain.com = 10.10.10.x
hostb.domain.com = 10.10.10.x
hosta.domain2.com=10.10.11.x
hostb.domain2.com=10.10.11.x


Anything not specified on the internal Windows DNS server should forward the
request to the Domain's/ISP's authoritative DNS server to resolve the public
address that the host sits on.

anythingelse.domain.com = rely on outside (authoritative) nameserver
anythingelse.domain2.com = rely on outside (authoritative) nameserver

You can use a delegation. Rt-click domain.com, new Delegation, type in
"anythingelse" (the system will prefix 'anythingelse' to domain.com to show
anythingelse.domain.com), then provide the IP addresses of the actual
authorative server. If not sure of the server, use nslookup and use "set
type=soa" to set the query for the SOA. Repeat for each domain.
