DNS migration to Windows AD DNS

Need to migrate DNS from old BIND box to Windows DC Server 2016.  Anyone can point to the right direction and steps required?
Also, lots of users are on Ubuntu and Macs.  Would ipconfig /flushdns work on non-windows machines to refresh that after the cutover?
Thanks in advance.

It would be more like this
sudo /etc/init.d/dns-clean restart

Open in new window

the
sudo /etc/init.d/networking force-reload

Open in new window

Any reason why you do not just let everything register again?

I would select secure Dynamic updates

There's no option for Secure only.  Either "None" or "Nonsecure and secure"

Shaun VermaakTechnical Specialist/DeveloperCommented:
Set Nonsecure and secure for now

OK all set thank you!  My A static records I entered are all unsecure.  They don;t have that Security tab that shows in the article you sent.

Still trying to grasp thru how DNS would know about the static records.

zone you created is not ad integrated zone, hence you are unable to see "secure only" option

Also what about static entries your bind server may have which are explicitly created

Those entries will not register automatically on windows dns server

you need to export bind zone and find / filter out static entries and then need to create on windows dns server manually or with dnscmd commands

After installing DNS set zone with these PowerShell commands to get the security tab

I think I will be entering those static Host A records manually.  Since I cannot access the DNS db file directly on AD-integrated DNS.  Luckily I have less than 100 records.  Maybe ~70.

Does anyone point to the dnscmd command for adding static assignments Host A records?
