Multiple NICS one 1 PC, trying to add multiple DNS entries 4 each

Discussion in 'DNS Server' started by Vitaly Markovsky, Apr 12, 2006.

  1. Hey guys and gals,

    We have a Win 2K3 server with 3 NICs installed. The subnets are
    192.168.50.X, 70.X, and 40.X, all class C.
    The reason we want those 3 to hit those subnets is that we have a gigabit
    connection to each of the subnets from the server. The name of the server is
    Atlas and it is in AD on the 50 subnet (registered in DNS). What I tried to
    do in DNS is add an entry for each subnet, for example, Atlas50, Atlas70, and
    Atlas40 for the the three subnets so machines on each of the subnets can find
    them immediately.
    The problem is anytime I try to map a drive to any AtlasXX, it doesn't work!
    Says I got a duplicate name on the network! If I map to Atlas itself, it
    works, but then I run across the 50 subnet and lose gigabit and take extra
    hops through routers from the 40 and 70 subnets.
    Is there any way I can setup Atlas so that it can be accessed from each of
    the subnets using separate DNS?

    Thanks in advance as always!
