I did find somewhat similar questions here, this one shows first I think, on google:
Modify DNS cache other than HOSTS file?
This one too:
Windows DNS Manager and Sub Domains
I also found this article:
But I'm still not clear, I'm a programmer here, so here is what I need to do:
I work with a client who has a large LAN network, they use host files to add a domain name (which takes a lot of time).
The network has static IP addresses assigned to each PC.
How do I add a domain to this network, assuming I have access to whatever servers they use?
I'd just like some basic info going from the links above, would I use DNS manager? What range do I add? The static, assigned IPs are arranged like 10.region.floor.xxx (and there are a mighty lot of them)
The admins actually guide each guys network guys in each region to edit the host file, the problem is I have an app running there, and it points to a server with an IP address like (http://10.1.10.1/service.svc) and when the servers change I have trouble, so I want to add a domain and have my app point to it.
Working with Windows here, my server will prolly be Windows 2003 R2 or 2008.
Update Just to be clearer, I want www.myexample.com to point to a server of my choice on the LAN. My app should only query the domain (just like on the web) and should not have trouble if the server changes (and I should be able to change the server later)
