Change format of the DNS serial number - Windows 2003 Server with SP1
Posted on 2006-10-25
We are using a Windows 2003 Server operating system to host our Primary Public DNS server at our corporate premises. We have arranged with our Web hosting privder to use one of their DNS server as the Secondary DNS server.
We have problems getting the DNS records replicated from Primary DNS server to Secondary DNS server. The Service provider has requested that we change the format of the DNS serial number to YYYYMMDDnn in order to initiate DNS record transfer.
Currently the serial number is 64 and it is in integer format.
How can we make this change on the Primary DNS server running on Windows 2003 Server SP1 operating system?
