Create PTR Record using dnscmd command

To add a new PTR resource record on command line using the command dnscmd, do the following

1. Assume domain dns zone is, dns server is "dnsserver", Host name and IP address of the dns client for which PTR record to be created are "" and "" and reverse lookup zone is ""

2. Now run the following to create PTR resource record

dnscmd.exe /recordadd 200 PTR

3. Thus PTR record has been created and can be verified in the dns manager console.

Sameway, for a subdomain say, PTR record can be created using DNSCMD.

Assume sundomain name is, ip address of the dnsserver of the subdomain is

dnscmd.exe /recordadd 150 PTR
