Reverse lookup zones


I am a bit of a novice when it comes to configuring DNS so forgive me if this is a stupid question. We have multipul subnets on our network (40) and I have been looking into reverse lookup zones for the domain. Should I configure a lookup zone for each subnet?

Thanks guys

Yes.  If you're running AD-integrated DNS, the basic ones (, and should be created automatically, but you will have to create the others yourself.  For example, we have multiple locations occupying subnets - and so our Reverse Lookup Zones in MS DNS look like the attached screenshot.
