DNS - Reload

Hey,

Just a quick question:

My DNS server (SBS 2003, also acts as DHCP and only DC on network) has many (MANY) old pointers under 'Reverse Lookup Zone' and I think this is causing some problems when trying to resolve IP to correct hostname (and vice versa).

What is easiest way of refreshing these pointers? Is it as easy as right clicking on the affected subnet & clicking 'Reload'? Can this be done 'on the fly' or do I need all users to be offline?

Thanks in advance,

I think you can use scavenging/aging. Have a look here:

Take a look here.  Good information for aging and scavenging configuration on DNS servers.
