Symptoms

DNS reverse zone lookup fails for networks that are smaller than a /24 network.

Steps To Reproduce:

  1. Create a network smaller than a /24. (e.g. 192.168.0.128 /25).
    The application creates a network
  2. Create a static host within the network and assign a domain name to it. (eg 192.168.0.129 testhost.com)
  3. Assign the forward and reverse domains as zones and assign it a name server.
  4. After restarting the PIC and DNS server view the DB files and try to do a reverse lookup on the address
