Yes, the button is there....it happened on two separate servers and both
were setup from scratch using the sbs setup a couple of years ago and the
reason I checked this issue is the dns event 7062 that have started to
appear in event log recently.

Thanks

Now that's really odd...
If you look at the DNS Server in SBS on the Root Hints tab
Is there a copy from Server button??

For some reason they disappeared and only the sbs server appears there.

what are you trying to accomplish?
The root hints are already configured if you're using an SBS server

You should be able to copy the updated and complete hints from any valid
root server. For an up to date list see;
