AD DNS Zone with A Record not resolving through GlobalProtect VPN gw

L0 Member

We are using Active Directory for our internal corp DNS.  I am connected to the corp network using GlobalProtect VPN (multi-gateway).  I'm able to resolve names in our primary DNS zone across the VPN tunnel.  I just added a new zone, which overrides a public zone -  And, I added an A record to it: <myHostName>  When I am on a server in eth corp network, the A record resolves using the FQDN.  However, from my laptop, using the VPN gateway, the DNS does not resolve to eth internal A record IP.  It resolves to a public IP.


How do I tell GlobalProtect to make that DNS zone and the A record available to clients connecting vi VPN gateway?


Yes, I'm a total GlobalProtect noob.  I will be passing this info on to our network peeps to config the gateways (hopefully). Thank you!

Hi @PeterDanielsCRB 

Are the same DNS servers used on a client connected by global protect and your internal server?

Thanks for the response, @Remo 


They seem to be different, yet somewhat sync'd - at least the main company zone (domain) seems sync'd.
