Hello,

When I do a NSLOOKUP on users systems and servers, I'm getting this:

C:\Users\nimda>nslookup app
1.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.ip6.arpa
        primary name server = 1.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.
0.0.0.0.0.0.0.ip6.arpa
        responsible mail addr = (root)
        serial  = 0
        refresh = 28800 (8 hours)
        retry   = 7200 (2 hours)
        expire  = 604800 (7 days)
        default TTL = 86400 (1 day)
Server:  UnKnown
Address:  ::1

Name:    app.RAPA.local
Address:  192.168.1.176

What is all those 10000000?

Thanks,

That is the IPv6 loopback address, equivalent to 127.0.0.1 for IPv4.

You can have the same DNS name in multiple PTR records.  What you can't have is the same PTR record pointing to more than 1 name.

Can you explain the image with duplicate computer names? Also why does it say Server: Unknown?

Under DNS Manager I have some other duplicates. Can you explain if this is ok?

I did explain it.  It's not going to break anything, you probably have 2 corresponding A records for that computer as well.  If both IP's listed for a computer are actually configured on the computer, then there shouldn't be any problems.

It says Server: UnKnown because there is no PTR record for that IPv6 address, you need to setup the reverse zone for it.
