Im trying to run DNS audits and following these instructions:

But I dont see my domain zone when I connect using ADSIEdit. I have over 30 subnets but only see 13 when I go to CN=System,CN=MicrosoftDNS. I attached a screenshot. Can anyone tell me why my domain zone is not listed and not all my subnets either?

Logon to your domain controller, go to adsiedit.msc and right click \ connect to
The type distinguished name as below

DC=Domaindnszones,dc=domain,dc=com

In the last computer field type server name where your DNS server role is installed

Note that DNS server role must be installed on that server and server must be acting as Domain controller

Also if you are trying to connect to child domain, then partition would be as below
DC=Domaindnszones,dc=childdomain,dc=parentdomain,dc=com

Then you should be able to connect
