hm, not really:

root at linuxclient:~# net ads dns register -P
Successfully registered hostname with DNS
root at linuxclient:~# nslookup linuxclient

Name:	linuxclient.samdom.example.com

root at linuxclient:~# nslookup

** server can't find NXDOMAIN

Reverse Zone has just been created using the following command:
samba-tool dns zonecreate sambadc 56.168.192.in-addr.arpa

Looking at the reverse zone using mmc.exe on the windows client I can not
see any entry either.

As before. Manually adding reverse dns entries to this zone still works fine.
