Hello,
I have the following problem: I cannot add an alias for my zentyal server "srv01". The alias I want is "autoconfig.mydomain.lan".
I try to add it under DNS settings - they get added - but the only one host who can ping "autoconfig.mydomain.lan" is the Zentyal server "srv01" itself. No other host in the local network can ping "autoconf.mydomain.lan".  Why ?

nslookup autoconfig
says
"non existant domain"

What can I do about it ?

It's getting stranger by the day:

C:\Users\Admin>nslookup autoconfig.mycompany.lan

C:\Users\Admin>ping autoconfig.myconpany.lan
