Setting up a Forward lookup zone (Cname)

Hello all,

I'm currently looking at a solution to reroute our users from youtube.com to restrict.youtube.com by creating a forward lookup zone via cname. I've been told that this may not be possible with Novell DNS/DHCP. We are currently running OES11 SP2 2013 2.0.4. Below is the link from google outlining what we are trying to do.

Option 1

Thanks!

What Google is describing is normally a violation of domain rights,
which means the basic/dumb DNS servers can be made to do that, but not
ones that make sure you are doing 'the right thing'

I'm assuming you don't have any web filtering such as Websense (now
ForcePoint) otherwise that is where I'd be looking to control it first.

A work around if you have this level of control would be to push out a
custom hosts file to your users systems that include those CNAMEs in
them as:

www.youtube.com. IN CNAME restrict.youtube.com.
m.youtube.com. IN CNAME restrict.youtube.com.
youtubei.googleapis.com. IN CNAME restrict.youtube.com.
youtube.googleapis.com. IN CNAME restrict.youtube.com.
www.youtube-nocookie.com. IN CNAME restrict.youtube.com.
