I have a child domain which only has say 7 records in the reverse lookup zone however on my root doman I have 100+, im sure I ran a command on my other child domains that populated the records. however for the life of me I cant find it now

any ideas or was I just dreaming of automatically populating the child domains DNS reverse lookup  zones?

Thanks

Dreaming :)

Are the zone names the same? Or is one a sub-domain of the other? Or entirely different?

In that case might I suggest that you do the following:

1. Delete the version in the child domain
2. In the parent domain:
  a. Open the Properties for the zone
  b. Change the Replication option to "All DNS Servers in the AD Forest"
3. Wait a bit for it to replicate

That way, everyone gets the same zone rather than you having to worry about getting values from one version to another.

Note: This method is incompatible with Windows 2000 Server based Domain Controllers

Just in case: This all applies to the Reverse Lookup Zone. The Forward Lookup Zone remains as it is.
