    Default Emulating DNS for a Virtual Cluster

    So I managed to convince my Boss to consider a heterogeneous server backbone for our next infrastructure upgrade but I have one little problem. Im not allowed to touch he main network for testing so Im virtualizing everything on a lone server at home.

    How could I satisfy this requirement:

    In order to send and receive email, the Zimbra MTA must be configured in DNS with both A and MX records. For sending mail, the MTA uses DNS to resolve hostnames and email-routing information. To receive mail, the MX record must be configured correctly to route the message to the mail server.

    In an isolated and virtualized cluster (Just for testing)?

    Install a DNS server, go to the Split DNS article for details.

    There's no reason why it wouldn't work if the 'isolated' machines use that DNS server.
