Hi,

Please take some time to understand current situation for me.

I am in the process of moving DNS hosting from current provider to new hosting provider which is our DNS registrar.

One reason of doing this is because I have no access to current DNS hosting information, and I cannot login to their system to modify DNS records because this was done by third party and information to contact them is no longer available to me.

My questions is:

How would I be able to know about all DNS records without accessing to current DNS hosting provider? Because I need to put A,CNAME and MX record into new DNS hosting provider before DNS delegation.

Will DNS report give me enough information?

Unless you can contact the current provider and get them to release the information to you, I don't see any way that you'll be get all the current records.  If you prove that you own the domain, they might just do it.

Otherwise, you're left with educated guesses.  It's easy enough to find basic information like MX records as the name is already known.  You could just do a command like the following and view the results.
nslookup -q=all yourdomain.com 8.8.8.8
But for other A and CNAME records, you either have to know or guess the name and then do a DNS query to see if anything is returned.  A couple common ones to try are "www.yourdomain.com" and "autodiscover.yourdomain.com".
