changing authorative DNS, need to know best way to query current entries
Posted on 2013-02-02
I need to change the authorative DNS server from one that is managed by someone else to one I have control over.
What is the best way to be sure I know all the entries I need to put in?
I used the NsLookup tool on the site network-tools.com, did a query type "any" and query class "any" to the server that is currently authorative.
I believe the results i got were complete
SOA, 2 NS, an MX and an A record for the site along with 3 other A records (2 for the name servers and one for a webmail name)
