Trying to delete a reverse lookup DNS zone using the command line approach.

dnscmd localhost /zonedelete 0.in-addr.arpa /dsdel

I receive the following error: DNS_ERROR_INVALID_ZONE_TYPE 9611

Am I doing something wrong here?

Its AD integrated zone or standalone dns? if its a standalone dns remove the /dsdel in the command. /dsdel is for AD integrated zones only.

Note the addition of /dsdel to the command. This is require to remove the zone from AD if it is AD integrated. Otherwise you will receive an error such as DNS_ERROR_INVALID_ZONE_TYPE 9611. If you are working with a non-AD integrated zone then it is fine without /dsdel.

Refer the below

Its an AD integrated zone.

I tried both, with and without. No go.

Is this correct format of your reverse zone 0.in-addr.arpa .? Have you tried to delete it directly from dnsmgmt.msc.

You are missing some octet.Below is the sample example
C:\>dnscmd /zonedelete 1.168.192.in-addr.arpa /dsdel

You can also connect to ADSIEDIT and delete the reqruired zone.

Hi,

According to the Technet -

Delete a Zone

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc816812(v=ws.10).aspx
This is the Syntax

dnscmd <ServerName> /ZoneDelete <ZoneName> [/DsDel] [/f]

<ServerName>
Required. Specifies the DNS host name of the DNS server. You can also type the IP address of the DNS server. To specify the DNS server on the local computer, you can also type a period (.)
 
What i see you are using is the localhost,try the command with the Hostname/Full FQDN

It should work!

Hope that helps :)
