No Nslookup

Ok I think this is an easy fix. If I want to do an nslookup on an IP address in my domain I get a Non-existent domain.

Server: domain.DNS.com

*** domain.dns.com can't find Non-existent domain

however if i ping

Any ideas what is causing the non nslookup?

- look in your dns if this pc is listed in the forward and reverse lookup zon
- During nslookup choose a speficied DNS Server
- check the clients dns server (the right one and the right order)
- make a ipcondif /flushdns and ipconfig /registerdns on this client and your ping client

Ok interesting. I have a handful of my desktop machines listed in the reverse lookup zones.
Shouldn't that be created automaticaly when a new machine is added to the domain?

What I mean is out of the 35+ desktop machines I have running in my domain looks like only 6 machines are listed in the reverse lookup zones

     Hi NetNinja
             Yep it is an easy fix. You have to create a PTR record for DNS server IP address. Read the "Adding a PTR Record Later" in the following article
