Dear All,

I have around 173 revers lookup zone in my DNS and I want to configure all of them for a dynamic update to be secure, I try the following command:

Dnscmd ServerName /Config {AllZones} /AllowUpdate 2
I got the following error:

DNS Server failed to reset registry property.
    Status = 9601 (0x00002581)
Command failed:  DNS_ERROR_ZONE_DOES_NOT_EXIST     9601    0x2581

I need help to apply the settings in all DNS lookup zone.

I have DNS installed on windows 2008 R2

Thanks

Windows Server 2008–based DNS clients try to use nonsecure dynamic updates first. If the nonsecure update is refused, clients try to use a secure update.

Also, clients use a default update policy that lets them to try to overwrite a previously registered resource record, unless they are specifically blocked by update security.

By default, after a zone becomes Active Directory-integrated, Windows Server 2008–based DNS servers enable only secure dynamic updates.

you can use the following command to retrieve all the reverse zones names:
dnscmd /enumzones /reverse
then, for each zone, you can run the command
dnscmd /config 10.10.in-addr.arpa /allowupdate 2
My reverse lookup zone was 10.10 here.
