    Internal DNS Entry

    I am trying to set up an internal DNS entry for a sub domain of ours to work inside school - i am trying to add the DNS entry for sub.domain.org.uk to our DNS server but obviously it just appends the name with domain.internal address

    What is it that i need to set up to make this work? do i need to add another lookup zone or something like that?

    Thanks

    Toby

    Yeap, just make a new zone as below and it will foward it happily for you to the internal address.

    You could create a zone called "hostname.domainname.com" and then within
    that zone create a blank host A record (same as parent) pointing to the
    relevant internal IP

    Then your server would only be authorative for the zone "hostname.domainname.
    com"and any records within that zone (such as the same as parent host record
    you need)

    Only drawback to this is you have to create a separate DNS zone for each host
    and a same as parent record but it works
    or in a different wording

    That *should* work?

    Yes as you are making a new zone that does not require any additional information or updates from other sources higher up the DNS foodchain.
