DNS server running on a box with Win Server 2K3 with Global Catalog and all FSMO roles assigned .
I have had the following settings set as follows for a long time:
Scavenge Stale Resource Records (Box is checked)
No Refresh Interval
No-Refresh Interval 7 Days
Re Frefresh Interval
Refresh Interval 7 Days
Several records have been duplicating with the same IP given to two
different Computer names. I have been manually deleting them
Last evening I manually clicked on Scavenge Stale Resource Records
1470 Nodes were visited
1352 records were scavenged
my DNS database is down to 22 records
ALL of these computers were used in the last 48 hours........
Anyway to retrieve them back other than manually add them back?
I am running a single DNS server.
Looking for a option
Also, when I use NSLookup I am getting "Cannot find this Server" which does not surprise me.
Thanks in advance

Hello John, unfortunately this is not possible as the information is already wiped out. The information is also gone from AD. Although, since all machines automatically register in DNS, chances are that these machines will automatically show up eventually. You can also send an email to all users (if a possibility) to reboot their boxes so that the machines reregister. I know these advices are not very bright but these are the best possible options rather than reregistering them manually.
