Identification of a Product Bug

Subhro has identified a bug in Microsoft Windows DNS Server, which can delete large number of reverse DNS records without any warning, while creating overlapping reverse lookup zones.

Subhro has published a wiki article on this issue, and also reported the issue to Microsoft Support team. The team reproduced the issue in Microsoft lab and confirmed that this finding is true. They also informed that this issue would probably be fixed with the next release of Windows.

He has also uploaded a PowerShell script in the TechNet Gallery, which would help creating large number of DNS records within a short period of time.
