Trying to understand how zone transfers work
If there are 2 servers which are also DCs and host a AD integrated zone (server 1 and 2).
Then need to make 2 additional servers (3 and 4) host secondary zones
If server 1 is the master server for the zone transfers, which should update the appropriate servers of any change only if there is a change
I'm not grasping DNS so forgive me but..
1) Why would Server 2 NOT be included in the 'Notify' box?
2) I've been told as it hosts the zone, but what is there is a change. Doesn't this server need to know?
3) Why can't servers that host the zone be notified of changes?
4) Also been told server 2 may be the named servers tab, but once again...doesn't this server (server 2) need to know of any change?
