RDNS Lookups failing from XP client/Win 2003 server
Posted on 2006-11-20
I am responsible for a Windows 2003 server, running DNS. It is set to use another DNS server for forwarding queries.
Using NSLOOKUP, forward lookups on the server work properly (requests are forwarded and responses received).
Forward lookups also work properly from the clients which ask this server (requests are forwarded and responses received).
However, reverse DNS lookups using NSLOOKUP are not being forwarded to the forwarder. I get the message "<dns_server> can't find <ip_address>: Non-existent domain"
