Windows 2008 nslookup, it does not resolve the server name

Postby guest » Sat Jun 14, 2008 12:38 pm

When doing a nslookup, it does not resolve the server name for the internal
DNS server. It says Server: Unknown.

This behavior indicates that nslookup cannot map the IP address to the
server name. This is the expected behavior if you do not setup a Reverse
Lookup zone. A Reverse Lookup zone contains PTR records that maps IP
addresses to computer name. A Reverse Lookup zone is not required when we
configure a DNS server.

Please try adding a reverse lookup zone refer to the following article:

After adding the reverse lookup zone, run the following command on server:

ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns

Then check the reverse lookup zone, ensure the PRT record for the DNS
server exists. Then try nslookup again
