I did some testing with my ml server but I do not get accross with reverse dns reverse lookup of my server.
I created an open directory master after configuring the dns service.
only local --> domain: imac-server.local --> ip 10.0.1.8
Airpot Extreme router, shared ip adress dhcp+nat
OSX Server 10.8
After a clean install it worked - now my reverse dns zone is 126.96.36.199.in-addr.arpa.
Now I created a second primary zone (for another server) --> Reverse lookup is 1.0.10.in-addr.arpa. --> but it also works???
Could anyone explain me what is the difference between having a reverse lookup zone like x.1.0.10.in-addr.arpa.or a zone like 1.0.10.in-addr.arpa.
Have no idaea.
188.8.131.52.in-addr.arpa. is the DNS reverse zone for the single host 10.0.1.8, and 1.0.10.in-addr.arpa is the reverse zone for the subnet 10.0.1.0/24. I'd only tend to expect to find 1.0.10.in-addr.arpa and not the 184.108.40.206.in-addr.arpa. zone, assuming a /24 subnet (255.255.255.0) is in play.
