Geeky question of the day. . . Why .local for the default Windows SBS 2008 domain name extension?
For other resources on Mac’s… check out Eriq Neale’s blog posts… http://simultaneouspancakes.com/Lessons/2007/10/28/connecting-a-macintosh-running-mac-os-105-to-an-sbs-2003-server/
What about it? It saves DNS confusion over a public extension and something had to be used. What is the standard practice, I know people who set up the SBS domain names when using the same as name as their public domain as .local and other that use .com.local. I can not get a strait answer from anyone a to why one or the other.
Because they want to make it as difficult as possible for MACs to connect to a SBS network? You know that whole rigga-merole you have to go through to get a MAC to connect when using a .local domain right?
