Issue with Reverse DNS lookups
I hope this is the correct sub-forum.
I am running a few RHEL and Debian servers here at work, but have run into a bit of a problem.
If i use nsslookup or dig to look up a machine on our LAN by IP or name, i get the correct information returned.
However when things are getting put into syslog, it is ONLY putting in the IP. As we use DHCP, the IP can be quite useless sometimes.

The network is a windows network, and the the linux boxes are all treated as standalone - ie there is no NIS or other software running.
