Hi,

Is it possible to remap an entire domain with named?

This is the situation: I have a server at home running named. I have added a zone forwarder to our company DNS server. This works fine.
Code:

zone "brighttech-ltd.lan" IN {
  type forward;
  forward only;
  forwarders {192.168.1.254};
}

The inconvenience is: the company internal domain is brighttech-ltd.lan. There is a subdomain labor.brighttech-ltd.lan. So accessing a device in the lab would be much shorter with its IP.
As long as I am using the DNS of the company on site, resolv.conf has the entry domain brighttech-ltd.lan, so I can access devices from <deviceName>.labor.
At home, my resolv.conf contains "search happy.home". I have tried with additional search brighttech-ltd.lan but does not work, if I ping <deviceName>.labor.

I had the idea to offload the mapping to named, but I did not find any possibility except create a cname entry for each host. I would be happy if it was possible to map the domain name of our company to something shorter "btt.ext".

Does anyone have any idea if and how I could accomplish this?

Thanks and BR
