  • 1. - Check that your network card on the domain controller does not have the address (localhost) instead must take the server IP.

    2. - In the forward zone creates a blank A record containing the IP of the domain controller server.

    3. - Create Reverse Zone with your network segment.

    4.-update the PTR of each record in your forward zone.

    5.-Performs a record with the Nslookup tool.

  • Hi,

    According to your description, I recommend you use a client whose DNS server pointed to the forwarder DNS server to see if those records can be resolved.

    Best regards,
