You will go into your DNS server, right click on the server name, new zone, Primary, Take the default on the Replication Scope, Then you will select the Reverse Lookup Zone.   Now you will put in the first 3 octets of the network you want the zone for.  For example for a network you will enter 192.168.56.  Take the defaults for the Dynamic Update, click next and finish.  Now you have created your reverse lookup.

in DNS console (dnsmgmt.msc),

right click the DNS server.
select 'Configure a DNS Server'
select 'create forward and reverse lookup zones'

and continue through the wizard.

The New Zone wizard automatically assumes that you are using the current domain when creating a new reverse lookup zone.

All you have to do is:
1. Right click on the DNS server and click New Zone.
2. decide if you want it Primary, Secondary or Integrated Zone (which is recommended when you have a Domain)
3. Just follow the instructions (they are well explainde)
Hope this will help you

hitechauto, I gave you the step by step answer, in more detail in the first post. I should have gotten the points or at least a split per EE guidelines.  Just wondering why you accepted the last post??

I would assume that from the length of time that has passed that you are not interested in fixing this error and following EE guidelines.  

Too many experts leave this forum and just stop helping people for exactly what you have done.  

They put in their time and effort to help others and the proper way of a Thank You or "paying them" is the awarding of points.  No one likes to be unappreciated and it is really disheartening for someone to take your suggestions, recommendations and answers and basically steal them.  No Thank you, no points, no nothing.

If there was still a feedback button, I would leave you negative feedback as you are ignoring the EE guidelines all of us agreed to abide by.  

You are establishing yourself a bad reputation for doing this and you will find it harder and harder for experts to help you as no one wants to be basically taken advantage of.  We all talk in the forums and get to know who are good people to help and who to avoid.

I can say I'm disappointed in the choices you are making.  IT is a small community, believe it or not and what goes around, comes around.
