Dns forward lookup zone not updating server 2016

Deleting a standard primary zone is usually unnecessary, unless you are redesigning your Domain Name System (DNS) namespace and the zone is no longer needed or used.

Make sure the reverse zone is AD-Integrated and also check the Zone Transfers tab and make sure they are allowed (generally Only to servers listed on the Name Servers tab).

Stay tuned for a follow-up article that will review the different available record types and how to configure them.

The forward DNS entries ("A" records) for windows machines on the domain are populated automatically.

At this point the DNS server contains no information and is only able to look up remotely configured names and addresses.

However, it is authoritative for the testing.local (or whatever zone name the reader configured) domain and records can be created that can be used both locally and remotely depending on the network configuration.

As shown in Figure 1, the DNS server role has been installed on the server and is shown in the left pane.

For those looking to perform this configuration on Windows Server 2008 R2, access to the DNS Manager can be achieved either through Server Manager or Administrative Tools.

Then check the Security tab on the Reverse Zone and make sure that group is authorized to create all child objects (DNS records) 2) If your statically-configured hosts are not updating the reverse zone, make sure their NICs are configured to register their IP in DNS (Windows hosts are enabled for this by default).
