Hi Louis, did you create '' ? I ask this because the OP was 
trying to create '', I created a zone with:

sudo samba-tool dns zonecreate 19.172.in-addr.arpa -U Administrator

I then created the record with:

sudo samba-tool dns add 19.172.in-addr.arpa 11.0 PTR 
member1.example.com -U Administrator

host -t PTR

Then gave me: domain name pointer member1.example.com.


host -t A member1.example.com


member1.example.com has address


nslookup    name = member1.example.com.
