School boy DNS error, help needed
I have recently updated our schools server and for some silly reason I decided to use a different name from our last domain. Are old domain was called 'Tavistock2.devon.sch.uk' and I had no problems, Now I have called our new domain 'tavistock-pri.devon.sch.uk' which is the same as our proxy! (bad move). Before I did this i did not think of the consiquences that this would have when it comes to DNS etc.
Since I have done this no PC's will find:
they are of course asking the server instead of the dns server pointing to the external sites because the server is fileserver.tavistock-pri.devon.sch.uk.
I am assuming I could use an IP address resolved from the addresses imail.*, staffproxy.* and proxy.* but I would prefere if I could just change something in the DNS server so there is no more problems, I think it would involve adding a forwarding address to DNS but not sure how or what to put.
Because of this problem I have had to change all the PC's proxy's to proxy.swgfl.org.uk and staffproxy.swgfl.org.uk so that they can access the internet and e-mails via outlook.
I hope I have made sense here and that the problem is posted in the right section.
Please just ask if I have not given the right or enough information for you to help me.
