Create a reverse lookup zone

I needed to create a DNS reverse lookup zone for my test environment. With Windows Server 2012 R2 I’ve got cmdlets available for managing DNS servers – the DnsServer module. You need to install the DNS role or the DNS RSAT tools to get access to the module.

 

To create a new reverse lookup zone

Add-DnsServerPrimaryZone -DynamicUpdate Secure -NetworkId '10.10.54.0/24' -ReplicationScope Domain

 

Use the netorkId to define the subnet the zone spans. Setting DynamicUpdate to Secure ensures I have an AD integrated zone and I’ve set the replication scope to the domain.

 

Doesn’t get any easier
