I have a question regarding NXDOMAIN/Unqualified Domain searches in BIND/DNS
What we want: We want the ability to have unresolved queries or unqualified searches go against a default bind zone. The reasoning for this is we have no dhcp server at our location and we have a lot of client machines we would have to end up adding suffixes for. This is undesired. What we are looking for is a replication of AD DNS global dns or the above.
Example: When user queries john.mydomain.com the local bind server sees this address and responds back with its information. When the user hits the dns server with an unqualified name such as john. It will try and resolve a TLD.
I have looked at origin directives and forwarding but come up short. We would like any DNS server or setup that works with this intended need, except for anything Microsoft.
Does anyone have any DNS ideas?
