Dear all,

Can anyone help me with  its experience on reverse dns for IPV6?
Presently, when we reverse an IPV4 subnet for clients, we configure all the reverse for the whole subnet.
It is a lot of PTR's but perfectly manageable.

With IPV6,  the number of IP's that we will receive is amazing.... seems impossible for every single IPV6 inthe range to configure a PTR.

So...what to do?
What is the common practice?
What is possible with BIND?

Thanks in advance for your answer.
