Creating a test lab for DNS.
This is the first time I'm trying to set up a file based DNS zone in Windows server.
When I create a primary zone with 'testzone.com' on the DNS server (computer name: INET) using New Zone wizard or using powershell, it creates the zone with two records, SOA and NS as following;

SOA  INET.
NS INET.

Not, INET.testzone.com. for SOA and NS records.

I expected the wizard automatically insert the domain name (zone name) to the records, but it doesn't.
Should  I change the FQDN on the record property and the zone property ? Why does it create this way?

It normally bases those on the FQDN of the server. Without it'll use the name only.

Feel free to change any of the records as you see fit. Don't forget to create the A record though.
