Configure a Pointer (PTR)record.A Pointer (PTR) record creates the appropriate entry in the reverse lookup zone for reverse queries. As you saw, you have the option of creating a PTR record when creating a Host record. If you did not choose to create your PTR record at that time, you can do it at any point.
To create a PTR record:
- Select DNS from the Administrative Tools folder to open the DNS console.
- Choose the reverse lookup zone where you want your PTR record created.
- From the Action menu, select New Pointer.
- Enter the Host IP Number and Host Name.
- Click OK.
