    I have my active directory in "mydomain.corp"

    We have a public DNS hosted by the ISP for "" which has mx
    records for our Exchange Server. Our firewall has a loopback to the Exchange
    server to handle internal/external access to those using wireless PDA's.

    Here's my question:

    I need to resolve names to specific internal servers (linux). Currently,
    they are "named" server1.mydomain.corp, but we have some software that
    creates links and doesn't like the ".corp" TLD. I am wondering if we can use
    an internal DNS so that server1.mydomain.COM can resolve to the servers
    private IP address (same as server1.mydomain.CORP). We could also use a
    sub-domain like "" if that makes things "easier."

    It seems to me, I can mess up a lot of external services like (external server), (external server) and
    Exchange services - if I'm not carefull.

    Can someone give me a little guidance on how I can best handle this?

  2. Create a new Forward Lookup zone named "server1.mydomain.COM" (without the
    quotes), in that zone, create a new host, leave the name field blank, and
    give it the IP of the Linux server.
