can't display server name when nslookup is issued


I have configured a dns server on redhat linux and it is working quite ok, but the problem is that when i issue nslookup it is not giving me the server name instead it is giving an ip address of the server.

The output is like this

Server: 192.168.0.2
Address: 192.168.0.2#53

Name: group3.edu
Address: 192.168.0.2

group3: in the example you listed, it says the name of the server is: Name: group3.edu

Are you saying IP 192.168.0.2 is not group3.edu?

Guys

I used nslookup command. So instead of the result come out like;

server: group3.group3.edu
address: 192.168.0.2

Name: group3.edu
address:192.168.0.2

It is giving

server: 192.168.0.2
address: 192.168.0.2#53

Name: group3.edu
address:192.168.0.2
