BYOD and DNS
Over the summer I'm looking at implementing BYOD using our existing Ruckus Wireless network. The wireless part is setup, users can authenticate using their AD login details and access limited resources, Internet etc.
One issue is that when I look at our DNS list, as well as all of our devices we too are getting entries from client devices. I'm wondering how you split these off in your schools where you have BYOD? I've thought of seperate DNS servers and a zone such as (client name).byod.schoolname.local. This way I can stop any potential issues of client devices being renamed to existing DNS names for servers etc and causing issues.
If you can you offer any suggestions I'd appreciate it.
We use an external DNS provider, OpenDNS. We set the IP for the DNS in the dhcp settings and then set acls on switches so that you cannot choose a different external provider like Google. It works really well and the management of filtering through OpenDNS is really easy
We use our Smoothwall box for DHCP & DNS (using the DNS proxy service) on our guest networks.
