Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have three different IPs on the same interface:

eth0      192.168.1.103
eth0:0    192.168.1.104
eth0:1    192.168.1.105

and I have the following in /etc/hosts:

192.168.1.103  host.example.com  host
192.168.1.104  host.example.com  host
192.168.1.105  host.example.com  host

Now, I'm wondering what are the proper entries for my 192.168.1.rev, so far I have it as:

103 IN PTR host.example.com.
104 IN PTR host.example.com.
105 IN PTR host.example.com.

That is the correct structure, although you'll probably want to put trailing dots on the rrdata so it doesn't append the zone name (host.example.com.1.168.192.in-addr.arpa).
