Stay tuned for a follow-up article that will review the different available record types and how to configure them.
The configuration of the lookup zones is not all that confusing, and when using the wizards available it becomes even easier.
As shown in Figure 1, the DNS server role has been installed on the server and is shown in the left pane.

For the purposes of providing the reader enough knowledge to get this task completed, this article takes a walkthrough approach.I had a customer with more than 60 DHCP Scopes but all DNS Reverse Lookup Zones were unfortunately not created, configured and/or consisted of a lot of old invalid static records.
