Subject RE: Manual DNS entries

But then they have to be in a different domain? As I assume the DNS will not forward requests
for the "DHCP" domain as he is authoritative.
What we would like to have is something like

cloudStackInstanceName	A
userEnteredInstanceName	CNAME	cloudInstanceName
additionalServiceName	CNAME	userEnteredInstanceName			PTR		cloudStackInstanceName

All this in the same domain as example

The DNS resolver is dnsmasq and is configured as a forwarder, except for the DHCP-configured
So I guess you could update your authoritative DNS server with the CNAME?
