Register DNS reverse


I've my linux connected to Active Directory with Samba.

I've registered the host in AD with:
net ads dns register

Now the rest of the computers can resolve the hostname.

But the problem is that some programs need to solve the reverse:
from IP to host-domain

and that's not done by "net ads dns register".

Does any know how do I can register in DNS of Active Directory the reverse? From IP--> hostname.

You'll probably want to run bind or some other DNS server which can support both forward and reverse queries. AD isn't intended to replace DNS, but supply additional services.
