Microsoft DNS Primary-to-Secondary Migration/Rebuild

Hi Everyone,

We have two Public Facing Name Servers here at our facility.
The secondary name server (NS2) is all jacked up.

I have tried to find documentation on destroying all records and rebuilding them all on a new server setup but I can not find any.

I can not rebuild all of the records manually due to the fact that the server has over 7,000 DNS Zones on it.

Please let me know if you have any experience with this type of process or if you know of any documentation to get me started in the right path

How is the secondary broken?

You can use dnscmd (from Windows Support Tools) and a small amount of scripting to export zones from one server and create them on a new one.
