Dns forward lookup zone not updating
The forward DNS entries ("A" records) for windows machines on the domain are populated automatically.
However, the reverse DNS entries ("PTR" Records) are not.
I have disabled the firewall on both servers, double-checked my DNS settings on the interfaces, etc.
A is a special type of forward lookup zone that contains information only about the authoritative name servers for the zone.The reverse lookup zone exists, and I can add entries to it manually, but it doesn't automatically populate.Dynamic updates are enabled for both the forward and reverse zones. This could be due to a couple of different things: 1) Are your clients obtaining IPs via a Windows DHCP Server?I'm having an issue trying to create a secondary forward lookup zone in Active Directory on one of my DCs.
I have two DCs in different domains: Name: Parkserv OS: 2008 R2Domain: copper.local IP: 192.168.250.3Name: Boalsburg OS: 2003 R2Domain: blackberry.local IP: 192.168.251.1There were no issues creating the copper.local forward look zone on Boalsburg (blackberry.local), I can see all the DNS entries as I should.
