how does one create an A record for the domain?
i guess i'm wondering what is set up in dns to allow a lookup to a
domain name to return an ip address. say i want to ping ibm.com. it
works, i get an ip address resolved to ping ibm.com.
What am i trying to accomplish? I need to set up a web site where the
fqdn will be ABC.company.com. I also need to have an authoritative
dns server for only the ABC.company.com zone. Basically i need the ip
for the web server to be returned when ABC.company.com is queried. It
would be easy to just add an A record for ABC in the company.com zone
but i am not allowed to do that in this case.
i know enough to set up A and PTR records all day but not a lot about
dns as a whole. this is probably a no-duh type question but any
insight would be helpful.
