How do you check which dns server is master?

How can you tell what dns server is master?   We are having problems with zone transfer to a secondary server and we have two primarys and I dont know which one is master.

You can check which machine is the 'master' of a zone.

Right click the zone in DNS then click the SOA tab

If the zones are ad integrated then there is no master.

You can see what machine holds the fsmo roles

Ok I see all that now, why would I not be able to transfer a reverser lookup zone.  The two before it worked fine but this one will not transfer.

Will You Be GDPR Compliant by 5/28/2018?

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!

All should transfer on their own.
A reverse lookup zoen isnt crucial and you can always delete it and recreate it with no ill effects.  Then see if replication happens from one machine to another.
