Reverse DNS (PTR) Configuration Changed?

Just raised a ticket after finding that my change to my nslookup details has reverted back to "username.plus.com" from "your_static_ip.plus.com".

Plus net changed this June last year and now I'm wondering when it changed back? Also can't remember the last time I checked it.

Anyone else had a problem with this recently?

Reverse DNS (PTR) Configuration Changed?

There was a zonefile issue for the plus.com zone in the last few months.

This may be one possible problem from this.

A zonefile defines the DNS records for a 'zone' (or host) I believe - http://usertools.plus.net/status/archive/1116850636.htm has information on the problems.

OK, thanks.

However that issue says that it could affect customers set up in May 2005 my change was in June 2004 so I dont think this was the cause of my problem.
