  • nslookup

    I have tow servers xxx.xx.xxx.232 and xxxx.xx.xxx.235. I run nslookup on both servers and get this. Both are on the same subnet. How do I resolve this?
    C:\>nslookup
    *** Can't find server name for address xxx.xxx.xxx.232: Non-existent domain
    Default Server: UnKnown
    Address: xxx.xx.xxx.232
    Thanks

    Hi,

    This message occures when you don't have reserve lookup zone configured in DNS

        I configured a reverse lookup on server xxx.xx.xxx.235. do I need to setup reverse lookup on server xxx.xx.xxx.232? I still get the same error.

          Ignore the last question. I am tired. I still get the error.

            Yes you do need to set them up on each server unless DNS is AD intergrated. If it is then it will replicate.

            Have you setup PTR records for the servers involved???

              They are integrated. I created a reverse lookup on .235 and ran nslookup and the server appears; howerver, reverse lookup does not appear on .232. I can run nslookup on the .232 and the server appears. At the promtp >, I enter the ip address for .235 i get the error "encsd1.net can' t finde encsd3 which is .235. Non existent domain. Thanks for your help!
