Previously I wrote about the Google Apps shortname service which lets you set up a tinyurl service for your enterprise.
The article implies that the service can be used without using the FQDN. This is not true. In other words, I had said that "go.example.com/lunch" could be shortened to "go/lunch".
There is a workaround that makes it work. It is difficult to configure, but I've set up a Community Wiki on ServerFault.com that explains all the steps. As a wiki, I hope people can fill in the items I left blank, particularly specific configuration snippets for ISC BIND, Windows DHCP server, Linux DHCP clients, and so on.
The new article is here: How to set up Google ShortName service for my domain, so that the FQDN isn't needed
