Hi folks, first post so be gentle :-)
(Network names have been changed to protect the innocent!)
We are running virtual machines and have a domain that is called test1 whereas it should be part of a larger network called TEST1.net.blah.local
Now it is running with users groups etc and we had to add a suffix onto each users machine for them to equal the proper name but here and there we get problems. It is also a DNS server and the dns shows a set up for TEST1 and for TEST1.net.blah.local
We would obviously like to do away with the short TEST1 in the DNS and have everything with the full name.
Do we have to demote the DC and start from fresh or is it possible to set up another virtual machine and have people redirect to that once it is up and running?
Does that even make sense!! Hope so :-)
