  • Hiya,

    No. The machine needs to be able to resolve the domain name in order to authenticate the user in the domain.

    Adding only the domain name and IP address in the host file, might help you a little. Depending on what exactly it is you want.

  • Create a Secondary DNS server and point all the clients to that DNS. Make sure DNS replication must be fine.

    DNS only need to resolve hostname to IP or vice versa, no matter its on DC or member server.

    Clients still needs to be able to resolve the name(DNS) of the domain, to a domain controller in order to authenticate. No matter if its AD integrated DNS or not.
