I'm trying to setup a DNS test environment. The company uses the Netware servers as cache servers by forwarding requests to a unix DNS server.

Instead of a unix server, I've setup a DNS server (MS server 2003) and created a forwarder on the netware server the same as production. Name resolution (ping servername) works fine from a client when using the Netware server as its DNS server but not for reverse lookups. If I change the clients DNS server to the actual DNS server (MS Server 2003), reverse lookups work fine. So its something in Novell DNS thats stopping it.

Obviously it is possible as its working in production.. i just don't know what I'm missing.

Netware 6.5 SP7

Any ideas?
