    Default Split-DNS setup possible with the ZCA?

    Just curious, but I assume that a Split-DNS setup would still be required with the ZCA if it is run behind a firewall.

    How would this be done with the appliance? Is it ok to access the OS to install bind and make the necessary configuration as you would do with the open source edition?

    Also, are the changes made persistent across updates and is anything broken by accessing the OS?

    Thanks

    Yes, that's correct.

    You should install the DNS server on another machine in your LAN, it doesn't have to be on the Zimbra server.

    Is this because the ZCA's OS cannot or should not be modified?

    You should leave the O/S as it is and not modify it but I always install my DNS server(s) on different machines than the Zimbra server.

    Ok thanks for explaining! I guess it makes sense to leave the appliance OS alone, as opposed to open source edition where many install bind on the same server.

    Have you had a chance to use the appliance? What do you think if you compare to the open source version?

    No, I must admit that I haven't had a chance to test it yet.

    It's meant to be easy to deploy (being a VM appliance it should be) and it's also an NE version free for 10 users.
