Creating a DNAME Record

A DNAME record maps all the names in one domain to those in another domain, essentially substituting one domain name suffix with the other (see RFC 2672, Non-Terminal DNS Name Redirection). For example, adding a DNAME record to the corpxyz.com domain mapping "corpxyz.com" to "corp200.com" maps name-x.corpxyz.com to name-x.corp200.com:

Domain Name


Target Domain Name

server1.corpxyz.com

—>

server1.corp200.com

server2.corpxyz.com

—>

server2.corp200.com

server3.corpxyz.com

—>

server3.corp200.com

. . . .corpxyz.com

—>

. . . .corp200.com
