I'm sure this is easy, I am just not a domain admin.
We need to add a DNS record to our domain controller (Windows Server 2008).  All PCs on our domain use our DC as primary DNS.  They need to be able to connect to whatever.example.com, which carries an IP of 192.168.10.11.  I'm confused by all the A, PTR, etc records - can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance!

You need to create an A record for that IP address so that it you can register its FQDN. After that try ping server and server.com for example. all being well you should get the 10.11 IP address respond. take a look at the follwing article which will help you with the other definitions
