Changing the DNS scavenging server
Posted on 2011-03-17
I am in the process of demoting one of our old DC's (I have 3 DC's in the domain). This DC is also set as the scavenging server for the AD integrated DNS zones. I want to change the server to one of the other ones but I noticed the following when I look at the zone aging properties on each DC.
1. The zone properties on the DC which is the scavenging server has a Date and Time of 3/17/2011 7:00:00PM which is correct.
2. The same ad dns zone properties on the DC that I want to set as the new scavenging server has a Date and Time of 11/14/2007 3:00:00 PM on the Zone aging properties.
When I change the setting to the server in step 2. above, is that going to cause me problems based on that old date, or will it reset?
