Environment

Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 SP3 (OES2SP3)
Domain Services for Windows
DSFW

Situation

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.



Resolution

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.
