Hi, I had Windows 2003 As domain controller with DHCP. There was only one cope in DHCP.
Then I added new domain controlled on 2008 R2. After successful replication I moved all roles to new Domain Controller. Then I exported DHCP database on old Domain Controller and disabled the old DHCP, installed DHCP service on new DC and imported database.
Everything was fine. Next I created few new scopes on new DHCP but I discovered that there are no reverse lookup zones for new scopes.
Should I create the zones manually or should the zones be created automatically during scope creation?
The Active Directory Installation wizard does not automatically add a reverse lookup zone and PTR resource records, because it
is possible that another server, such as the parent server, controls the reverse lookup zone. We might want to add a reverse lookup zone to our server if no other server controls the reverse lookup zone for the hosts listed in your forward lookup zone.
To add a reverse lookup zone
In Control Panel, double-click
Administrative Tools and then double-click DNS.
Optionally, if the server to which you want to add a reverse lookup zone does not appear in the list, right-click
DNS, click Connect to Computer, and then follow the instructions to add the desired server.
To display the zones, click the server name.
Reverse Lookup Zones folder, and click New Zone. A zone configuration wizard appears.
Regarding adding a Reverse Lookup Zone, the following article may be referred to for more information.
