Round Robin DNS Question RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have two web servers, one in North America and one in Europe with two A records and IP addresses.  Both web servers run the identical static content web page.  I do not need to replicate anything between the two servers.  All North American networks are (192.168.x.x)  and all European networks are (10.1.x.x).  I have these reflected in ADS&S.  DNS records look like this:

    Webserver1       192.168.1.100

    Webserver1       10.1.1.100

     

    When a client on a North American network the makes a request for webserver1 will it always get 192.168.1.100.  When a client on a European network always get 10.1.1.100?

     

    I know that that there are several DNS providers which do this for public networks, but I am looking for a similar solution for private networks.  Sort of like how AD figures out which DC you should bind to based on the site you participate in.  Ideally this is a capability in AD integrated DNS or BIND. 

    Any ideas how I can make this round robin with AD DNS?

    Thanks
