    Hi all,

    The officially adopted RFC for IPv6 reverse is RFC3596

    old RFCs
    RFC 1886 said that the IPv6 reverse resolution suffix is ip6.int.
    [win2000dns server is compliant, I've not tried Win2k3]

    RFC 3152 said that the IPv6 reverse resolution suffix is ip6.arpa.
    [win2003dns server is compliant]

    current RFC
    RFC 3596 says that the IPv6 reverse resolution suffix is ip6.arpa.
    [only win2003dns server is compliant]

    I've tried to create, in win2k DNS server,
    a reverse zone for IPv6

    Actually, there is no support for ip6.int zones under the reverse resolution tree.
    So I've created a direct resolution .ip6.int zone
    and magically is disappeared from direct res. and is appeared under reverse res. tree...

    So I,ve tried to create a reverse zone for RFC3596
    I've tried using the normal procedure (Create zone > Primary > ZoneName > New Zone File > failed! unable to create)
    and the file-driven procedure ((Create zone > Primary > ZoneName > Use that File > failed! unable to create)

    So, there are NO WAY to create a ip6.arpa zone in win2k dns server.

    I hope that Microsoft will (immediately) ASAP patch the win2k dns server
    enabling RFC3596 support for ip6.arpa reverse resolution zones
