Creating reverse zones is crucial to DNS server configuration, and in performing reverse name service lookups. In this video, we will see how to configure the zone in /etc/named.conf and create the Start of Authority record as well as other records in the reverse zone file. Then we'll test our configuration with a reverse query.
