Hopefully not domain.local, if the OP read the other answer that he linked to in his opening bullet :)

Why can't a virtual server be dedicated? It really, take this up with your provider - how can we help you better than they could?

Please provide your teaming settings. There are multiple team configurations and only a subset works with the topology that you're describing.

comment Choosing between meaningful and meaningless hostnames
If you're naming servers like this, you're likely not leveraging server build automation (unless you're also creating and maintaining a database of these names - yuck busy work). This is probably fine on a small scale, but at "cloud-scale" this just isn't feasible. As Ian says in his answer, in today's cloud-first world, servers should be livestock, not pets.

comment Does Azure support using Linux as the OS instead of Windows for PaaS Web Apps?
Why does it matter? Platform as a Service, by definition, doesn't care about the underlying host OS - the platform is provided to you as a service. You just bring your code.

Why not make your two DNS infrastructures interact cohesively via forwarders, stub zones, delegations, etc? Seems like a better solution than solving the problem via DHCP.

Please don't log into a domain controller (or any other server) to manage it with an interactive session. Use remote management consoles and CLI instead.
