    Thanks for this! Unfortunately it’s a little late for me though, and I’ve found that domain.com (example) is now a problem internally as going to domain.com inside the domain.com domain in a browser doesn’t show our site as I don’t believe there’s a way to have that root domain point to both webservers for HTTP requests and our AD servers for domain controller requests. Though if anyone has a solution to this I’m all ears!

    Is there a significance to the forest name? Or any gotchas like with the domain name and public/internal

    Thanks a lot! This is exactly what I was thinking about right now during the installation a server for client. I have very bad experience from our AD where I used couple years ago our registered public domain name and now it doesn’t resolve the company website from the LAN in the office etc…
