DNS Reverse Lookup failing

By razorren ·
Hi. I'm in the process of transfering the host of my DNS domain to a locally managed server. I have the server configured with foward and reverse lookup zones in Windows 2000. However when I do a nslookup on the Primary DNS servers IP address I get the following...
c:> nslookup -q =ptr 53.21.100.1
Server: name1.mydomain.com
Address: 53.21.100.1
*** name1.mydomain.com cant find =ptr Server failed

Why can't I do a reverse lookup on this address ?

Is this AD integrated DNS? If yes, do check your _tcp records. Besides, you need to check your name server of your Reverse Lookup Zone. Are they available? Do check it out.

Cheers!

Hi,

you've got a syntax problem. Try one of these, as both should work.

nslookup q=ptr 53.21.100.1

or

nslookup 53.21.100.1

The easiest way to do a reverse lookup is simply to use nslookup IPAddress, it then resolves the IPAddress intoa name if at all possible.

Thanks

Just a note about the previous answer. It has NOTHING to do with _tcp records. These records are used by Windows 2000 clients to find an authenticating domain controller, NOT to find a DNS server!

IT IS SIMPLE
YOU DID NOT CREATE "PTR" RECORD FOR DNS SERVER IN THE REVERSE LOOKUP ZONE .
