If a reverse zone already exists with the for the subnet, a FRD install will
overwrite the zone removing all records and populating it with just the A
record for the DSfW server.


The workaround is to back up the existing zones including the reverse zone before installing DSfW.
After installing DSfW restore the zone then create an A record for the DSfW server in the reverse zone.
