Right now we are about to migrate thousands of Altiris 6x package servers in a large retail environment over to ITMS site servers. In the Altiris 6x infrastructure, the codebase is generated via HTTP and UNC using short name resolution which works fine in our retail environment in the same broadcast domain.
The issue we are running into with ITMS site servers is that the SWDpackagecodebase table now hands out the FQDN of the site server and to each client, therefore forcing us to insert thousands of "A" records in our primary DNS zone which is not ideal.
Is there a way to force to manipulate on the client end the swdpackagecodebase to append a connection specific suffix for a sub zone instead of handing out only the primary DNS suffix for each site server? For instance, instead of hostname.acme.com to view the connection specific suffix\dynamic dns sub zone as hostname.subzone.acme.com.
