Hi im following the following article in order to join my 2003 server to a sbs domain:

http://www.smallbizserver.net/Articles/tabid/266/ArticleType/ArticleView/ArticleID/223/Default.aspx

Theres a bit in the article where it requires you to add new reverse lookup zone in Small business servers dns configuration. the reverse lookup zone is the first three octets of my remote server, out of curiosity why do I need to do this?

Reverse Lookup Zone resolves IP to Name. Without RLZ, you won't be able to ping any devices using its IP address. It is not an absolute must to have a RLZ but it will help resolving network traffic.

FYI - Forward Lookup Zone resolves Name to IP. So if you ping a server by its name it is the FLZ the DNS will look at.
