Domain-name host records

    We have a split DNs with internal hosts registering into an internal WIn2k3
    DNS for mycorp.com. Our outward facing hosts are in an external DNS also in
    mycorp.com.

    In the external dns we have mycorp.com pointing to a host record that
    matches www.mycorp.com so that http://mycorp.com goes to our web site.
    SImple stuff.

    We want to implement the same scheme for our internal DNS. We currently
    have a host (A) record for mycorp.com that points to the IP for our web
    server. However, it appears that each domain controller also registers an A
    record as mycorp.com. As these don't have the web site, http://mycorp.com
    usually returns an error.

    Can you help me understand why thr DCs register A records, whether we need
    it and if not, how to stop it?

    Alternately, how can I accomplish the web thing for http://mycorp.com?

    Thanks

  2. Read inline please.

    In
    Yes, they need it, this is how Domain Members access group Policies and
    logon scripts located on DFS shares on all DCs at \\mycorp.com\SYSVOL and
    \\mycorp.com\NETLOGON.
    Install IIS on all DCs and setup a website the redirects http://mycorp.com
    to http://www.mycorp.com. It will work just fine so long as all links in the
    website are relative links or use http://www.mycorp.com/pagename Any links
    that have http://mycorp.com/pagename will get redirected to
    http://www.mycorp.com.
    The redirection setting is on the Home Directory tab or the Web site
    properties sheet, and also on the File tab of individual pages properties
    sheets in the IIS Manager.
