Configuring DNS Servers On A FortiGate To Split DNS Traffic Out

FortiGate Split DNS

Use Case: Client has multiple branches that are spread out geographically. These locations utilize a central domain controller for active directory driven resources but need to be able to use local google servers for local domain resolution of content delivery networks, etc. All branches to a headquarters location that is located on the other side of the country (or wide distance from local branch). Local branch does not want users to go across the country for services that are available local.
