I am trying to setup FreeIPA on Azure as 1 Server ---> 2 Clients without actually utilizing a domain name i.e. I want to use a fictitious domain name such as "example.azure.local" and still have the connectivity between the server and the clients. However, I do want to expose the FreeIPA web-interface to the Server's public IP address for me to easily manage the users.
Is this possible without actually using a domain name? If so, how should I configure my DNS to achieve the same result.
Please Note: I am not that comfortable with setting up BIND or any other DNS service, extra information may be required in the DNS department of this setup.
