I'm attempting to setup split horizon dns for a small business (Windows 2003 SBS). The network internally uses a .local domain. Now I've setup a zone for the extern domain, but am having troubles getting the results I (think) I want.
The problem is that the SOA field for the new zone keeps resetting to the internalserver.domain.local, even though I want it to be srv1.domain.com. internalserver.domain.local is the name of the DC/DNS server. This leads to trouble when I run a diagnostic software from outside the network, since it cannot resolve the .local adress.
Also, if I do
dig @ns.domain.com host.domain.local I can get the information from the internal network, which I clearly do not want. How can this be prevented?
