JSI Tip 3029. When I edit a Windows 2000 Active Directory integrated zone file, it does not update the zone information?

When you create a zone on a DNS server, a corresponding zone file is created in the %SystemRoot%\System32\Dns folder.

When you convert the zone to an Active Directory integrated primary zone, the zone file is no longer parsed.

NOTE: Move the zone (.dns) files to the %SystemRoot%\System32\Dns\Backup folder.
