I have followed the proceedure in google cloud documentation...https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/instances/create-ptr-record
- verify domain ownership (done and verified)
- in google cloud console, go to vm instances> Edit > edit primary network interface > click checkbox to enable Public DNS PTR Record
- As soon as i enter mydomain.com into this and click save i get the following error
Editing VM instance "server3" failed. Error: Invalid value for field 'resource.publicPtrDomainName': 'mydomain.com.au.'. Please verify ownership of the PTR domain at https://www.google.com/webmasters/verification/verification?domain=mydomain.com.au.
I make note of the following post on this topic...Google Cloud DNS - What does the PTR record actually do?
however, in my case, my server public ip address is provided by google cloud compute. So who am i supposed to go to for this record? It appears from what i am reading that it is google. However, the above error i am getting doesnt make any sense.
Am i enterring the PTR domain incorrectly? (what format should it be enterred in the Google Cloud Console?)
From the other stack exchange post i have referred to on this topic, it appears that i need to set google nameservers for this to work. Is this true?
If question 2 above is "yes", my server is in Australia. The dns latency is over 100m/s which is terrible.My current dns provider latency is around 12m/s. I dont want crap dns latency...is there a workaround?
