I have few questions about what I see in our DNS console:
1- In our DNS, I see a zone named _msdcs.XYZ.com then under it the yellow folder icons named dc,domains,gc,pdc
if I delete the _msdcs zone or any of the other folders under it, would that cause a problem?
2-I see a zone name and under it a white folder icon _msdcs, then yellow folders _sites,_tcp,_tls,_udp
can you tell me what this white folder icon _msdcs means and what's the meaning of the yellow folder _tls?
3-I see a zone that doesn't have the _sites,_tcp,_udp yellow folders at all,
it looks like this hierarchy:
- Yelloy folder Zone name
-Yello folder com
-yellow folder XYZ
- Yellow folder net
- yellow folder xyz
xyz is the name of our domain.
can you explain to me what that mean?
4-I see different zone names as AD Integrated zones, I thought DNS which is also a DC can have just one AD integrated zone, which represents the zone name of the AD to which DNS server belongs to.
5-How can I tell from DNS console that a certain yellow folder icon means a child domain zone?
