We are about to setup a new web platform with a mix of Linux servers and MS servers, we are planning to utilise MSDNS for our AD domain and MS servers and will use Bind for our root nameservers for our website (lets say www.example.com) in addition to being a location for storing our Linux server records, my question is;
1.What should our AD Domain be?
2.What should our Bind Domain be?
Can we have the following
- AD = www.example.com , BIND = www.example.com
- AD = windows.example.com , BIND = www.example.com
- AD = www.example.net , BIND = www.example.com
The Bind (root) servers will always be www.example.com, so i guess the question is, what do we do with our Windows domain?! .. We initially thought to have it the same as the BIND domain (www.example.com) and use forwarders in MSDNS to the root servers for lookup of our Linux servers, but can these co-exist and can BIND look to the MSDNS for the Windows Server records.
Any help is much appreciated. Thanks,
Apologies for not making this clear as to what will be internal and external DNS, however we have done some more work on this... We will be looking to running Bind for our external domain DNS, www.example.com .
Then we will be runnning internal Bind DNS for our linux host records and internal MSDNS for our windows host records on www.example.local for example... Would this be possible, or would there be any headaches around this?
