DNS/ Pathping/Tracert question

    Question

  • From one of our DNS servers I try to perform a tracert to the following client

    tracert -4 10.10.64.66

    Tracing route to EDC [10.10.64.66]
    over a maximum of 30 hops:

      1    <1 ms    <1 ms    <1 ms  10.10.62.1
      2    <1 ms     7 ms    <1 ms  10.150.150.6
      3     1 ms     1 ms     1 ms  10.150.150.9
      4    <1 ms    <1 ms    <1 ms  EDC [10.10.64.66]

    Trace complete.

    EDC is our Domain name.  Why would dns return that? 

    I did check and there is no DNS reverse entry for the ip address 10.10.64.66 (a forward record does exist but no reverse).

    So if a reverse record does not exist does it return the domain name by default?  I wouldn't think that would be good but perhaps that is the case?
