Hi Slava,


From the example given, it doesn't look like a standard reverse mapping zone/PTR record.  I believe you are trying to create an RFC2317 prefix zone and corresponding records. If so the below KB would be helpful.

Syam, thank you.


This record is required for airprint service discovery. There is a high level description of this technique in rfc6763 (section 11). The zone in my case is "" and what I'm looking to do is add a ptr for the subnet IP ( in my case) with a few extra characters to the left and point it to a domain name.


The RR would be: PTR


which as far as I understand is a legitimate name. Bind let's me add it to the zone and I was hoping to do the same in infoblox (nios 8.0.7) since that's where this zone lives in our case. Here is bind responding with that record:


; <<>> DiG 9.10.3-P4-Ubuntu <<>> @localhost ptr +noall +answer
; (2 servers found)
;; global options: +cmd 300 IN PTR


any ideas how I might do this?

Hi veaceslav,


Did some further testing and research and found that currently NIOS does not support DNS-SD. We already have a feature request RFE-3873 for supporting DNS-SD. Please contact your Account Team to prioritize this feature request.
