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 10.1.1.5" 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?
