Hi all.

Some time ago we have decommissioned several DCs .However, the NS records
were not removed from the reverse lookup zones. Under properties of the
RLZ, name server TAB, I see the old DC name and ip address *unknown*. FYI.
My findings seem to indicate old NS are remove in the forward lookup zone
but not in RFL whenever you decommission a DC and need to be manually
removed.

Since I have literally about a hundred RLZs how do I remove the old NS
records, other than manually removing one at a time under each RLZ.?. I'm
hoping for a simpler solutions.

..TIA..

have a look on feature "scavenging" which need to be enabled separately for
forward and reverse zones.

Enable Aging and Scavenging for DNS

Hello southpaw,

If you remove a DC/DNS form the domain not all entries are automatically
deleted, so you have to check DNS zone properties for the name server tab
also and all zones toi be sure that they are removed. Also you have to control
AD sites and services manual to delete removed DC from the server list.

Best regards

Noted. but there must be a simpler approach since I have about hundred
reverse lookup zones..

Thanks.. I'll take a look but I don''t believe scavenging will remove old NS
records under RLZ properties..
