    Reverse DNS issue…Help Needed Please ..?


    Hi,

    We have configured reverse DNS and asked the Network team to update the RIPE database.But we have got the reply from them saying that:

    “This needs to be authorative first on the DNS servers before we can update RIPE.”

    Can anybody tell me what does they mean by authorative first on the DNS?


    Forward DNS is in Place :
    =====================
    carnap# nslookup mail1.reftec.se
    Server: dns1.o2.ie
    Address: 62.40.32.33

    Non-authoritative answer:
    Name: mail1.reftec.se
    Address: 45.204.215.233

    Reverse DNS is in Place :
    ===================
    carnap# nslookup 45.204.215.233
    Server: dns1.o2.ie
    Address: 62.40.32.33

    Name: mail1. reftec.se
    Address: 45.204.215.233


    Can anybody tell me what does they mean by authorative first on the DNS?


    Regards,
    Aparna

    The forward lookups aren't working for me even when I direct the query to the nameserver you listed. So I'd suggest that you get that working first, and confirm with a DNS lookup from outside your network.

    Code:
    $ dig mail1.reftec.se
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.2.0 <<>> mail1.reftec.se
    ;; global options:  printcmd
    ;; Got answer:

    run the following;

    Code:
    dig reftec.se ns
    and post the output.

    this will show who is the authorative server for this domain.

    Sorry for the late reply, Sandy has me working overtime the past few weeks.

    Here is what I am seeing
    Code:
    ; <<>> DiG 9.3.2 <<>> @4.2.2.2 sungard.com reftec.se ns
    ; (1 server found)
    ;; global options:  printcmd

    reftec.se.              172800  IN      NS      ns1.chalmers.se.
    
    ;; Query time: 154 msec

    These are the Authorative DNS servers for reftec.se.
