Updating reverse lookup zones
Make sure that the name is the same as the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) DNS domain name for which the zone is authoritative. b.) Click Allow any dynamic updates for all other zones (that is, zones that may not be integrated into Active Directory). Click yes, create a reverse lookup zone now, and then click Next.

Click one of the following three options: a.) Click Allow only secure dynamic updates if the zone is integrated into Active Directory.In this article, we’ll talk about the steps to configure forward lookup zone in Server 2012 R2.As we know that DNS is used for name resolution, it resolves host name to IP address and IP address to host name.
If you prefer not to resolve names outside your network by forwarding queries to an external server, click No, it should not forward queries. There are also many Subzones for more specific networks, I'm guessing these were created during the creation of the networks themselves and checking the box "Automatically Create Reverse-Mapping Zone". Inside that are many "NS Records" and many "PTR Records" for hosts manually given one, ie not the automatically created ptr records made when creating a Host records, those are not listed but I know they are there somewhere.The second line in each script requires a tad of explanation.In order to set IPv6 to use DHCP instead of pointing to local loopback (::1), we have to use the . Well, your dns resolving doesn’t return true unless we do this as it ‘catches’ the IPv6 before it gets to IPv4, so unless you specify your IPv6 you need to set this to DHCP.
