comment Unable to login into CISCO SAN switch management IP
well there is your problem. you do not have network connectivity to it. You need to resolve that first. Device manager just uses SNMP with a pretty gui. If it cannot see it, it cannot manage it. Hence the reason I asked if it was L2 Adjacent? IF it isn't L2 adjacent then you need to check things like Router Hops, access lists, and subnet masks on the management port.

comment Unable to login into CISCO SAN switch management IP
what is between the device manager and the SAN switch network wise? are they on the same L2 Network? are their firewalls in place? can you ping the switch from the computer the device manager is running on etc.

comment Correct DNS entries for Domain
what they mean is your AD domain shouldn't be example.com if your external domain is example.com. Since internal hosts will override/shadow external hosts(you might want this). normally I've seen internal AD domains called things like example.dom or example.lan

comment Masquerading a Webserver
well that would be a bit harder using this(I suggested this way since you said the server IP didn't exist anymore).. Since this server wouldn't be able to talk to the remote server if it had the same Ip that you aliased. If it had a different IP address you could proxy to the other server. The other option would be to drop the alias, and then use something like squid in a transparent proxy mode, perhaps coupled with an ICAP server if you need to do response modification.

comment Wildcard SSL not working for multiple subdomains
also just FYI. cheapssls.com you can get wildcard certs for way less $ than godaddy. you might be able to get godaddy to change the cert to *.dev, as opposed to *, but you probably won't get them to do both without buying another cert . good luck

comment Can I have 2 A records for the same domain
yes, but as others have said, it will randomly send traffic to both, and can totally break sessions and other thing that rely on state being maintained on the server. as for which one it visits. bind will return the A records in random order and in most cases the browser just takes the top one. But also if one goes down, is slow. X% (50 in a perfect world) of the requests will go to the down/overloaded server
