Hi,

I'm trying to figure out the correct configuration for DNS when deploying M365. In a local office, the set up is: private network -> on-premise DNS server -> firewall -> ISP router -> Internet

 

When resolving M365 endpoints for geographic locations, should the on-premise DNS server be configured as a resolving DNS server or should it be configured as a forwarding DNS server pointing to an ISP provided DNS server?

 

I'm guessing that if it is configured as a resolving DNS server then the source IP address in any DNS query will be the public IP address of the ISP router which should be ideal from a Geo-DNS lookup viewpoint.  But I'm not sure - any advice is welcome.

 

Regards,

AC
