Add a host (A) record to corporate DNS for a federation server

Updated: December 15, 2006

Applies To: Windows Server 2003 R2

For clients on the corporate network to successfully access a federation server using Windows Integrated authentication, an address (A) resource record must first be created in the corporate Domain Name System (DNS) that resolves the host name of the account federation server (for example, fs.corp.adatum.com) to the IP address of the federation server or federation server cluster. You can use the following procedure to add a host (A) record to corporate DNS for a federation server.

To add a host (A) record to corporate DNS for a federation server

  1. On a DNS server for the corporate network, open the DNS snap-in.

  2. In the console tree, right-click the applicable forward lookup zone, and then click New Host (A).

  3. In Name, type only the computer name of the federation server or federation server cluster (for example, type fs for the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) fs.adatum.com).

  4. In IP address, type the IP address for the federation server or federation server cluster (for example, 192.168.1.4).

  5. Click Add Host.
