    DNS Information Confusion


      From a previous post I know that IPAT uses pointer records to return the DNS name of an used host.

      When I use IPAT, for one of my subnets, I get very confusing responses regarding the DNS name.

      The subnet in question does not have a reverse lookup zone defined for it.  Yet I have some hosts with the correct DNS name in the DNS column, I have some hosts that are blank in the DNS column, and I have some hosts that say our company name in the DNS column.  Any ideas, why the DNS column would not be blank for all hosts?
