    question for Snow leopard server users
    Hi all,

    This question is specifically for people who are using SL server. If you are using Leopard server and what I ask is doable feel free to respond, otherwise I really only want SL based information.

    Ok, here's my question:

    On Tiger OSX Server, the front end gui for configuring DNS for both forward and reverse DNS was geared toward control over a full class C or better (basically non-subnetted IP ranges, if you attempted to reverse for a subnet of a class C, you had to go into command line to setup the configuration to make it work).

    I at home have a /28 subnet of live IP addresses. My upstream requires me to handle my own DNS, both forward and reverse (no big deal really, except for acting as authoritative for reverse on a subnet isn't always the most fun configuration).

    Does SL server DNS configuration tool offer the capability to configure reverse DNS based upon a subnet without having to go into command line to set it up. I obviously can do the reverse on command line (since I have before), but once you majorly tweak the DNS configuration files, it kinda breaks the guis ability to edit the DNS and for quick things sometimes I just like to access the configuration panels from my Mac Pro without having to telnet or remote into the server.

    I'm seriously considering upgrading my server with a new mac mini server, but I wanted to get some insight into whether some of these capabilities have changed.
