    Hi,

    I am working on DNS cleaning.
    I want to find out how many dns records are dynamically registered and how
    many are static in my dns zone. How do i do that?

    I want to make documentation of my DNS, which command will give me all the
    information of my DNS which are required for good documentation?

    Is there any more advice on DNS cleaning?.

    We use windows 2003 active directory integrated DNS.

    Thanks a lot,
    K L Yadav

    Double-click any record in question. Dynamically registered DNS records
    have the checkbox enabled for "delete this record when it becomes stale". I
    think, you can use an option in dnscmd.exe to generate a report on static
    vs. dynamically generated records in your DNS. To get rid of stale records,
    you need to enable scavenging on both the zone itself and on the server
    itself (two separate locations, both found in the DNS MMC).

    would you please give me detail syntax of dnscmd command you have suggested?.
    Secondly, can you guide me on how to do the DNS documentation, is there any
    std. template you can provide?.
    This would be great help to me.
    Many Thanks.

    Try:
    dnscmd servername /enumrecords zonename @ /type A /detail >filename.txt

    For DNS documentation:
