My company uses PowerDNS with a PowerAdmin front end to manage both internal and external DNS. I would like to be able to set up a short TLD so that for instance test1.lcl resolves to the internal ip address 10.0.5.124. I have tried creating a new master zone name .lcl and adding some entries but they do not work. We have both Macs and PCs in the office and I don't want to step on .local which Macs seem to use, I'd like to keep it to a 2 or 3 letter TLD if possible, and I certainly do not want use a valid internet TLD.
I have access to root access to the server and administrator access to PowerAdmin.
Is this possible, and if so, exactly how is it accomplished?
