Default reverse dns for ip with no web

Just a remark on reverse DNS.
We have a mail server on a separate IP. The IP is listed in ISPConfig's interface list but there is no web attached to it => no reverse DNS record is created then.
I have configured it manually in the zone file, and I also found out that just adding a
Code:
$GENERATE 1-255 $ PTR ip-netA-${0,3,d}.domain.com.
block will not help as it will generate SERVFAIL for the entire zone. When using the Generate-statement it seems you will have to manually exclude IPs that are already manually defined.
Just my 2c for today.
Regards
~jm

You dont have to create a website for DNS records, just use the DNS-Manager for this. Even the ISP-Manager part uses the DNS-mamnager in the backend for creating the DNS Records.

I'am talking about reverse DNS too. The reverse zones where added automatically if ISPConfig is authoritive for a domain.

If you create a zone in the DNS Manager, then ISPConfig creates the reverse records automatically. Have a look at your named.conf and the files referenced from there.
