Can't Find Server Name For Address [IP Address] - Non-Existent Domain

Hi,

I have just set up a new DC / DNS server [w2k3],  when I launch nslookup from the DNS MMC , straight away I get a command promt with

Can't Find Server Name For Address [IP Address Of DNS Server] - Non-Existent Domain
Default Server - Unknown
Address - [IP Address Of DNS Server]


Just wondering why this is happening? what could be causing this?

This is normal - its because you don't habe a reverse lookup zone - and you don't need one in 99% of cases. You can ignore the message.

... If you really must get rid of the message, then just create a reverse lookup zone for your subnet
