I am trying to get my head around making DNS and IPA work in an existing 
microsft AD / DNS site.

Initially I am setting up a proof of concept.......I will be delegating the 
unix.vuw.ac.nz as a sub-zone from vuw.ac.nz, this will hold all the Linux/unix 
servers.  IPA's DNS is forwarded to the main DNS servers.    My problem is the 
reverse zones....the remote AD masters hold the reverse zones so IPA has to 
query these if it needs to do a reverse lookup....this doesnt seem to be 
happening ie running "host" on the IPA master fails...I assume I need 
this to work...so whats the best way?  

Set the IPA DNS service as a slave of the microsoft AD reverse zones? If so how 
do I set this up? as per normal ie edit the named.conf directly? or do I do 
that from inside IPA?  (cant see how just yet)

or is there a better method? 

or does it matter if reverse lookups wont work?
