    I have a DNS installed with a primary zone and I have a
    forward lookup zone and a reverse lookup zone. I have a
    Windows XP Client that successfully registers itself in
    DNS and it creates an A record.

    However, there's no coresponding PTR record in the reverse
    lookup zone. I can create it manually and it works
    because I can run nslookup but there should be a way to
    automatically create a PTR record.

    I added the suffix to the client in TCP/IP -->Advanced--

    By default DHCP performs the functions of registering DNS pointer record.
    Check these options under your DHCP server.
