ADFS Internal DNS Setup RRS feed

  • Question

  • 1 DC=server name dc2016

    1 ADFS = server name adfs2016

    1 WAP = server name wap2016

    I created a DNS entry in my local DNS for my ADFS service fs.domain.com which point to my ADFS server ip address.

    I need to have my ADFS server join my domain. After my ADFS server joined the domain it created a DNS A record adfs2016 which has the server IP address.

    So now, I got two DNS A record entry for the same IP address. How do i remediate this?

    Thank you

  • You don't. Both are valid and have different purposes. The A record of the farm is used by clients to access the ADFS service, and the A record for the server can be used to remotely manage the OS. Like read event logs, connect to the C$ share etc...
