Is this normal to have this result in an NSLOOKUP Query?
I thought that PHX1 should resolve this.
I am on phx1 and this server also has the DNS information on it.

> phx1
Server:  UnKnown

Name:    phx1.cluster.pconsite.com

There should be a PTR record for your server in the reverse lookup zone.  The zone name should be 0.0.10.in-addr.arpa
What name are you looking up?

If you are looking up phx1, and you are on the machine phx1 and it's IP is, that the result is fine as phx1.cluster.pconsite.com will be the PC name and,, the assiociated IP addresses

Thanks. And yes I am on PHX1 <- Virtual SQL IP <- Cluster IP <- NIC IP

Thanks just wanted to make sure that no Reverse DNS need to be set up.
You have no PTR record. Create a PTR record for your server and that will resolve your issue.
