Test DNS Zone Transfer via CMD prompt [Windows DNS Server]

Table of contents

 Updated March 11th, 2016

Overview

This article describes how to test DNS Zone Transfer via a command prompt.

Environment

  • All IPAM versions

Steps

  1. Open an Admin CMD prompt on the IPAM server.
  2. Run the following commands:

    nslookup

    server <DNS Server Name OR ip address of DNS server>

    set type=any

    ls -d <DNS Zone Name> > dnstest.txt

    exit

  3. This will create a file, dnstest.txt, containing a list of the DNS records for this zone.

    If this works without error, we will need to investigate why zone transfers are not working in IPAM.
