  • Pointing A-records to internal IPs

    Hi,

    I have a bulk of servers which i need to use an A-record to be able to connect to a specific server.
    I have no internal DNS server so instead of mapping the A-record in the Hosts file for each server I would like to add it to the DNS zone in Godaddy and point to the internal server IP.

    The servers in my LAN are able ofcourse to resolve outside DNS records.

    Who's in favor ? and if not why ?

    your input is appreciated.

    Why wouldn't you have an internal DNS server??

    What exactly is the purpose of this??

    Do you have an Active Directory domain??

      Hi,

      it's hosted in a Datacenter.
      I don't want to manage a local DNS server
      No AD

        Whats hosted in a DataCentre??

        Nothing much to manage on a local install.

        Makes it easier.

        Will GoDaddy allow you to add the record?? If so then it really sounds like it is your only course of action. Please be aware though that the minute you add that record it will propogate and the IP details will be know all over the world.

          Use a local DNS server, or go old school using host files.
          DNS is not bound on AD, AD (or actually LDAP) is however bound on an DNS mechanism,

            this sounds like a very bad idea from a security perspective...
