DNS Name and DC domain RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am configuring a DC in a VNet. VMs deployed in VNet are under DNS name "XYZ.cloudapp.net" now when I am configuring DC, I have to specify Zone name. Description given for Zone name suggests that it's DNS name or a portion of DNS name.

    Is there any relation with the DNS name of VMs and DNS name of DC' Zone?

    do these two have to be same?

  • they're different. you should be setting up a DNS role as well for your new AD environment. see this link
