    Hi ,

    Where did you pass your MCSE ?
    You can not change the display.

      The reverse lookup zone is generated from your network so unless you have changed all the IP addresses, it should not need changing
      If you have changed IPs, create a new zone and the PTR records will gradually get created

        There IS a way to change the "default" names of your reverse lookup zones; but I'm not sure how. My German colleagues have set it up so that a new reverse lookup zone will be called (e.g.) 172.16.7.x (Site Name) instead of "7.16.172.IN-ADDR.ARPA".

        Again - I have no idea HOW they did it, but they have.
