I'm not very familiar with DNS, but with some recent repositioning at my company I'll be needing to get my hands into it more often than not now.

I need to verify the static ip and forward lookup of one of my new servers in our DNS domain. I've loaded up DNS a few times but our zones are a little screwy (hence the "repositioning") and just need a nudge in the right direction.

I'm in usually about 4 hours before anyone else, so I figured I'd ask here. :)

You can use the 'nslookup' command line to verify forward and reverse lookups from any workstation configured to use this DNS server.

Thank you very much.

How does one tell what other workstations are tethered to the same DNS servers as my server in question?

This is a VM (FWIW).

Depends if they are registering in DNS and if the server permits it, if you check your forward & reverse zones you may see some hostnames with IP's. I think that's about the best you can hope for without monitoring the traffic somehow.
