Mountain Lion Server DNS issues
Currently attempting to set up profile manager and no clue what i'm doing.
Server is all setup and I can access it via IP from an IDevice but not with the hostname.
server is called server.local (it's on a seperate vlan which is the guest wireless one)
I've set a static DNS entry for it in Smoothwall and I can ping the server with IP and hostname.
Do I need DNS settings in the server setting up ?

@caffrey this may be me going down the wrong route, but is your network domain name .local if so you will have problems with apple mac computers in general - I am not a mac expert but my understanding is that MacOS uses .local to mean "the local computer". For this reason we have started using .internal or .school for domain names.
Apologies if I have misunderstood your post.

Yeah i'm not sure what I'm doing having not used macs before, I just want this mac to be a profile manager for ipads - it's on a totally seperate network to the main school one via vlan and doesn't go anywhere near AD.

OK, thanks that makes more sense to me now. I went off on a tangent!
You may want to post this into the Smoothwall forum in case the issue is with the DNS record you have created. Sorry I am not an expert in this, but will have a look to see if I can find answers for you.

DNS record is working as far as I can tell as it resolves with ping and traceroute from a windows machine - wondering if the mac is blocking it somehow - total noob me
