Updating Zone Properties and the SOA Record

Each zone has separate properties that you can configure. These properties set general zone parameters by using the SOA record, change notification, and WINS integration. In the DNS console you set zone properties by doing one of the following:

  1. Right-click the zone you want to update and then select Properties from the shortcut menu.

  2. Select the zone and then select Properties on the Action menu.

Properties dialog boxes for forward and reverse lookup zones are identical except for the WINS and WINS-R tabs. In forward lookup zones, you use the WINS tab to configure lookups for NetBIOS computer names. In reverse lookup zones, you use the WINS-R tab to configure reverse lookups for NetBIOS computer names.
