Control network shares with DNS-



  • This is a new one on me,.. I don’t have much more than this;

    . State has AD tree with multiple domains.
    . Network shares ‘require’ local DNS record for a agency domain.
    . Displayed list shows servers and IPs and Host A record

    I’ve never heard of controlling shares with DNS. I may be able to get more information from that team, but they are in the middle of a pilot user domain to domain migration.

    Shares may be assigned to users via GPO and restricted to certain computers (here's your need for DNS).
    OR they may be using AD and GPO to create shares on remote computers.

    GPO Loopback is for the first option:
