Enabling Windows DNS debug logging

Last Modified: 2012-04-19
I need to enable DNS debug logging on all my DNS servers.  All but one are Windows 2008 R2 (the other is Windows 2003.)  I enabled the logging, created a folder to contain the logs, and told it to log to c:\dnsdebug\dnsdebug.log.  Only one of the servers actually logs anything, though; the others don't even create the file.  Is this how it's supposed to work (does one server take on logging for all of its neighbors somehow?)  Also, is there a way to go past the 1 GB log file size limit?  Thanks.
