Hi Guys,

I have about 1000 servers in my environment, when I go into DNS and double click a host A record for some of my servers the  "Update Associated Pointer (PTR) Record" is unchecked.

I need to find out which servers are unchecked and then i need to check it. it's very tedious for me to do this manually.

Are there any scripts I can use to help me with this?

My DNS servers are windows server 2008 R2.

thank you in advance.

You only need to do this if you're changing the record through the GUI interface, and if you're changing it you can see if it's checked or not.  This is only needed for records which you create statically.  If the servers update their own records using dynamic DNS and you've got DNS scavenging turned on then it's not a worry.

I'm not aware of any way to check this by script.  Given my understanding of what this setting is, I don't think it shows as an attribute of the record which you could check.
