A Script to get all DNS IPs and show the server names they are pointing to

I need to create a script that will grab all DNS IP's, show all server names and what they are pointing to. Does anyone have any ideas? I would prefer powershell only because I have used it more but any other idea is welcome..thanks

Take a look at Out-File:

>>the $Zone.Zonename does not seem to create anything I can find

I cannot help with that.  I don't have a DNS server I can use to test the scripts.

I'm a little confused.  Are you wanting to point to a DNS server and dump everything  it knows about?

I would start with Get-DnsServerZone and then Get-DnsServerResourceRecord

There are a few examples here:

If you are just trying to get a map of hostnames to IPs for a known subnet, why not just use nmap and scan the network and option for resolution?

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

yes slightwv (䄆 Netminder) I am trying to get as much DNS info as possible into a report. I was in a meeting and wrote down what was said on the fly. Right now I am just getting comfortable with running the Powershell commands and learning to generate output

it appears to run but I cannot find the output. I am playing with Syntax to just get it to output to something like C:\temp\DNS.txt
do u have the proper syntax for the last line of the 3 option?  the $Zone.Zonename does not seem to create anything I can find
