Create New PTR resource record

This resource record maps a reverse DNS domain name based on the IP address of a host to the forward DNS domain name of that host.

The following show on how to create PTR records in a dns server called "dnsserver".

1. Assume the dns server name is "dnsserver", domain name of the host is "dnsclient", IP address of the host dnsclient is ""

2. Open dns manager console by using the command dnsmgmt.msc

3. Now in the console tree, browse to reverse lookup zone, right click on reverse lookup zone and select "New Pointer(PTR)".

4. In the New resource record dialog, enter IP address and fully qualified name of the host

5. Thus PTR record has been created in the reverse lookup zone and one can verify it in the dns manager console.
