how to add domainsDnsZones in a single windows server 2012 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,
    im new in here, our company have a one windows server 2012 R2 for:
    AD, DHCP server, DNS Server, WSUS, GPO

    Recently we just implemented a new email server in our office with hostname:
    mail.alpha.com
    (172.16.129.21) - local ip
    (174.34.xx.xx) - public ip

    Our Domain name is bravo.intra (172.16.128.9)

    My question is only one:
    1. how can our local user access/ping mail.alpha.com by its local ip which is 172.16.129.21...? currently our local user access/ping mail.alpha.com is going to its public ip.

    Hope you guys can help with my issue :)

    Best Regards,

  • Hi,

    Primary  zone

    When a zone that this DNS server hosts is a primary zone, the DNS server is the primary source for information about this zone, and it stores the master copy of zone data in a local file or in AD DS. When the zone is stored in a file, by default the primary zone file is named zone_name.dns and it is located in the %windir%\System32\Dns folder on the server.

    More information about DNS zone,  please refer to the following article:

  • Hi,

    >>Our Domain name is bravo.intra (172.16.128.9)

    Does bravo.intra (172.16.128.9) mean your DC?

    Does your clients in subnet (172.16.128.x)?

    What is the perferred DNS in your client? Public DNS like 8.8.8.8  or  your DNS server?

    Please configure it as your DNS server IP. 

    Since I don't know your subnet mask, I'm not sure about the 172.16.129.21 and 172.16.128.9 in the same subnet.

    If they are in same subnet, please add a host A record in your DNS console.

    If they aren't in same subnet, please configure the IPv4 DHCP Relay Agent (install RRAS role)

  • Hi Frank,

    This is my answer:

    1. bravo.intra is our DC (DHCP server, AD,WSUS)
    2. Yes our client is in subnet 172.16.128.0
    3. Our preferred DNS in our client is our local DNS server (172.16.128.9)

    - 172.16.128.0/24
    - 172.16.129.0/24

    If i add a host A record in our DNS, then the fqdn for 172.16.129.21 will be:
    mail.alpha.com.bravo.intra -> it should just mail.otmerak.com.

    Really hope you can help me with this Frank.

  • Create a local zone alpha.com and add A record for mail pointing to your local IP.
