My question is whether it is necessary to enter these DNS reverse entries in DNS reverse zone? some background: They had tons of DNS error and not FQDNs. I was told to enter each abandoned name or ip address in DNS reverse zone –add a new PTR. These are all internal not FQDN and Ip addresses. Even cannot ping these IP addresses. the name like winx86oxccc some kind of garbage. I think they are all abandoned names. Some VM users created a new VM and join the domain then these VMs are deleted… Thye have 500 VMs, some for developers ‘ testing.
