DNS Internal and Extrenal

By dterrell ·
I have DNS installed as per Q172953 doc. for my registered internic domain name only. I have this set up for Exchange only. What is the proper procedure for DNS installation on my internal domain, which is not regitered.
I am running a PDC, BDC, Proxy (for web access, mail only), Exchange and a couple of stand-alones. I have DHCP and WINS running. What entries do I need to make to provide DNS internally without creating any recursive problems.

Do you need an internal DNS? if you are using a proxy, it will do DNS to the outside world.

your Internal network does not need DNS unless you are running Win2k, (where PDC/BDC is obsolete) or unix boxes. and it sounds like you have none of these.

My suggestion is to just use WINS on the internal network.

If you are saying you want to set-up a sub-domain for internal, create the sub-domain, i.e. internal.company.com and turn off recursive lookups:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DNS\Parameters\NoRecursion, change it from 0 to 1.

This will prevent queries for internal.company.com from going out to other DNS machines on the internet where they won't exist.
