in thread net::dns::update and ??

10 years later and I have this exact same problem. Can't figure out how to add a PTR record using Net::DNS. I wonder if OP ever figured this out...

The syntax of my rr_add is: rr_add( 3600 PTR

Is this correct? Thanks in advance...
# Create the update packet: my $update = Net::DNS::Update->new($OURDOMAIN); # Add the PTR record: $update->push(update => rr_add("$rev 3600 PTR $hst")); # Send the update to the zone's primary master. my $res = Net::DNS::Resolver->new; $res->nameservers("$OURNMSERV"); my $reply = $res->send($update);

    Resolved. Do a 'dig -x' on a valid IP address on the network. The "AUTHORITY SECTION" shows the zone to use for the 'new Net::DNS::Update' parameter.
