I really don't understand why I'm experiencing so much trouble for just creating a simple dns entry for myself. I have a Windows 2003 Server that is a Domain Controller and the DNS Server. This server has 2 ips 192...10 and 192...6. There are Host (A) records setup for 192...10 using confusing.domain.com which correctly resolves to 192...10.
When I try to create an Alias (CNAME) record that points to the FQDN of confusing.domain.com nothing occurs.
If I create an Host (A) record for 192...6 while inside the DNS server I can run
nslookup 192...6 and it will return simpleName.domain.com
however if I nslookup simpleName.domain.com once again it resolves to nothing.
