Exchange / IIS install w/Dynamic IP

By ArchiTech ·
I have a PPOE (Dynamic IP)DSL connection that have connected to a SonicWall Firewall to a HP switch w/4 clients. The server OS is win2kadv svr. I want to setup a BDC that will run Exchange2k and IIS/ftp etc. I utilize ArtofDNS to update my HostnameIP but I have no idea how to setup this enviornment with the dynamic HostnameIP. I dont have a domain name registered with the ArtofDNS service only the hostname. I have the PDC running with Active Directory and I can add additional users and machines to the domain. When I try to add a BDC to the domain and configure Active Directory it cant find the domain?? Help? If there is any add info needed I would be happy to provide.

It cannot find the domain because it cannot find the SRV Records in DNS. Not only host and pointer records need updated. If the SRV records are not registered and updated, no one will be able to locate the domain controller, including the DC itself.

On a side note, there are no PDC and BDCs in Active Directory. All DC's are peers that participate in Multi-Master replication.

You need to have your firewall proxy for your network. Use private IP address space inside the firewall with static IP's for your DC's and Exchange Server. Have the MX and A records updated for your public DNS without MX records updated, no one will be able to send mail from the outside world to your exchange server. Have the DC run DNS inside the network and point it to the ISP's DNS server for internet names. If it can, have the firewall do port redirection to the Exchange and FTP server.

Some Service Providers will provide URL forwarding for you. If you are using a Dynamic IP addressing on your public IP side, you may be able to register your public MAC address (Firewall or Router MAC) with the ISP to provide internet functions (i.e. www, ftp, mail, etc).

Hope this helps!
