Split Brain DNS RRS feed

  • Question

  • My company used the DNS name of our website for the domain name. What is the simplest way to implement split brain DNS within a virtual environment (vmware vdi)?

    I managed to get it working to a degree for some windows 10 machines but anything running windows 7 is still having issues. 

    My windows 10 machines are able to resolve to the website but windows 7 machines are not.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank You
