Apologies if this is already answered, its a tricky one to search for! We are using split DNS for a domain used internally. For the outside nameservers, theres a simple zone with:
@ IN A ip.ad.dr.ess www IN A ip.ad.re.ss
This works fine externally. Internally its a windows server 2003 DNS server, so the www a record works fine, but I cant figure out how to add that primary record (using at symbol @ in bind).
Can anyone help with how to get the same results from windows dns? I just want to be able to add a record for example.com without being forced to use something.example.com
Edit: This domain is not the "main" AD domain, and not used for logins etc.
Edit: I was attempting to update the zone on another server (zone is ad integrated, so shouldnt matter?) getting the error. Adding it to the same zone on another AD server worked. Not sure if it makes a difference, but this server that it worked on currently holds all fsmo roles.
