Server 2016 reverse dns not updating
Steven Warren explains how to install, configure, and troubleshoot a Windows Server 2008 DNS server.
As many of you are probably aware, the Domain Name System (DNS) is now the name resolution system of choice in Windows.
Finally, a Standard Secondary zone simply creates a copy of the existing database from another DNS server. To open the DNS server configuration tool: You have now installed and configured your first DNS server, and you're ready to add records to the zone(s) you created. The Start of Authority (SOA) tab allows you to make any adjustments necessary.
You can change the primary server that holds the SOA record, and you can change the person responsible for managing the SOA.
You set up all primary and secondary name servers through this record.
To create a Name Server, follow these steps: A Host (A) record maps a host name to an IP address.
A reverse lookup zone is not required, but it is easy to configure and will allow for your Windows Server 2008 Server to have full DNS functionality.
You can test this configuration by taking a DNS client and pointing its DNS setting to this server.
You should be able to resolve the host you just created.
These records help you easily identify another server in a forward lookup zone.
Host records improve query performance in multiple-zone environments, and you can also create a Pointer (PTR) record at the same time.
