you won't need glue records in reverse zones, because the hostnames of the 
name server to which you delegate a subdomain will never be in the delegated

Betreff: nsupdate: A records (glue) in reverse zones

Hi everybody,

the problem is that I am unable to create an A record in a reverse zone (for glue reasons).

Here's what I tried:

$ nsupdate -d
> zone
> update add 900 IN A

;; AUTHORITY SECTION:           0       IN      SOA 397 900 420 604800 10800

Found zone name:
The master is: before getaddrinfo()

Apparently, the zone prereq is ignored. Is that not possible at all? Or can anybody  shed some light as to what I am doing wrong here.

Thanks in advance,
