I have noticed whenever I run Nslookup againt a server name , I get the server Unknown. Though there is no DNS issue.

Can someone help explain and fix this issue ?

Address:  192.168.80.140

Name:    dc1.Test.local
Address:  192.168.80.140

this particular event is not an error, this means there is no entry in the reverse 192.168.80 reverse vzone 80.168.192.inn-addr.arpa a ptr record for 140 pointing to sername.yourdomain

140 in ptr servername.yourdomain.com.

This likely means your DNS server does not have the reverse zone configured/included.

You are correct..
I create Reverse lookup zone and added PTR record for the server and NSlookup shows the name of the server instead of Unknown
