Small Windows 2008 Reverse lookup Zone Tip 

Hi Folks ,

I do a lot of entries into the reverse look-up zone sometimes . I recently came across something strange . When using the MMC for DNS (Windows 2008 DNS tool ) I had “Advanced” selected in the MMC . When you have “Advanced” selected and go to enter in a ptr record you need to reverse the address (specifically the last 3 octets) . Now if you have “Advanced ” NOT selected it will place the first octet in for you and you can put in the IP address normally from left to right .

Strange Right ?

Who would want to put in reverse entries all the time ?

If this made sense cool if not let me know and I will try to explain it again with pictures .
