Hello everyone. I'm in the middle of scavenging DNS records. I've got all of our Reverse Lookup Zones scavenging correctly. We have around 4000 Forward Lookup Zone records, most of which have 'Delete this record when it becomes stale' checked. Many of these records I need to ensure DO NOT get deleted by any means. Is there a way to mass update all of the forward lookup zone records to 'uncheck' the box - then I can go through and check the one's that can be scavenged safely?
Thanks for your time!

Why wouldn’t you delete these records even it staled? Are these machines get IP address from DHCP? After the lease expires, it’s recommend to enable scavenging to delete the staled record.
If you need to keep specific IP address for these machines, you can static the IP address. And DNS server does not aging/scavenging static record.
Understanding aging and scavenging
Don't be afraid of DNS Scavenging. Just be patient.
