clients in domain can't resolve externally hosted website of same domain name.


  • Hello,

    We have a domain with a single server essentials 2016 acting as domain controller.

    the internal domain "" is the same as the public domain, the intention being to use split DNS to make the setup simple.

    The website "" is hosted externally;

    I can add de A-Record without issue, however the server keeps adding an A-Record * pointing to itself.

    Is this behaviour unique to essentials? It didn't doesn't seem to happen on server standard.

    More importantly, how do i turn it off? Is this record critical to server essentials' functionality?

    Thanks for any help!
