I want to add a pointer record in reverse lookup zone in windows 2012 Server. The pointer record should point to a delegated zone defined in a forward lookup zone.

I want to answer any DNS query: b._dns-sd._udp. PTR

My answer should be:

b._dns-sd._udp. PTR device-discovery.testzone.local.

I already have device-discovery delegation defined in testzone.local. which works fine.

Can someone please guide me how to add this PTR record in reverse lookup zone. Please comment in case of any question.

Thanks a lot.


I achieved this with the dnscmd command:

dnscmd /RecordAdd b._dns-sd._udp PTR device-discovery.testzone.local.
