I'm in the middle of a migration to a new domain - is there a way to export/import DNS entries? We are a child domain of a bigger forest and we are merging to one domain.  I would think DNS from my domain would be replicated but if's "lost".  I'm not in charge of this unfortunatly so I have no control.

yes you can use dnscmd to do the export and import
thats the MS link

below are some generic examples

dnscmd servername /enumrecords zonename @ /type A /detail > c:\filename.txt

detail – Lists all information about the records.

You can use dnscmd command to export csv file


dnscmd /enumrecords zonename @ /Type A /additional > c:\filename.csv

additional – Includes all additional information about the records listed.
