Does anyone know how to add comments inside of the DNS file that leave the file workable, but remain when you tell the server to "update the server file"?

ie.

host1          A     10.10.10.10     ;  Host added temporarily.

Can't do it.  You can add the host then make a DHCP reservation.  The DHCP reservation will allow you to add a comment.  You'd have to configure the server/PC to accept a DHCP request then assign its MAC address a DHCP reservation with comment.

That's assuming that I'm talking about a DDNS configuration, which I'm not.  I'm building a DNSBL to compliment the ones I'm already using.

You're creating a spam list?  That's a completely different question than the one you asked.  :)

No, it's completely related.

I have built a fully functional DNSBL.  The major limitation I find with Win2K DNS is that I can't include in the DNS files any comments - which means that I'm running 2 files - the live DNS data file, and a duplicate that has comments.

Well, there is no way to add comments inside of a DNS entry, no matter how you look at it.  Sometimes the answer is simply..."You can't do it."

I don't want to do it through the GUI anyway - I'm editing the DNS file - I hate the DNS GUI, and only use it for an AD-Integrated zone, but even then I'll use RK tools for the most part.

This is actually do-able using TXT entries.
